Today, health club company Konami announced that it will be removing thirty-one iOS gaming apps on September 10.

According to Inside Games (via Dr. Serkan Toto’s blog), the apps will not be updated to support iOS 9 or later. Some of the apps have English versions, such as Metal Gear Solid Touch (above), but Konami did not make any announcements regarding those.

In the gaming business, Konami is making the most money from its free-to-play games, such as World Soccer Collection S. These apps, it seems, are not free-to-play games.
