Swine Flu: Square and Koei studios rule out E3 attendance

Publish date:

The Japanese offices of two major publishers have prohibited staff from attending E3 in June – due to fears over swine flu.

MCV sister site Develop understands that Square Enix has cancelled plans for its Kingdom Hearts team to attend the show, whilst Koei has confirmed that an unspecified number of its Japanese employees will not be travelling to the event in Los Angeles.

Both will still have a strong turnout at E3, however, with European and American staff present – alongside a reduced number of representatives from Japan.
