Japanese Devs Shun E3 Because of Swine Flu

by Rainier on May 21, 2009 @ 7:36 p.m. PDT

While the swine flu, also known as H1N1, hasn't exactly turned out into the epidemic initially feared, it has been spreading and making victims all across North America. While the E3 organization issued a statement last month that the summit was not going to be affected, that was not taking into account Japanese developers who are being cautioned by their government about overseas travel. As such Capcom, KOEI and Square Enix have announced their Japanese staffers will not be present at the exhibition.
