Swine Flu Scares Square Enix and Koei Out of E3

May 20, 2009 Written by Dan Massi


According to reports, Square Enix and Koei will not be attending this year’s E3 convention. Why? Well, it’s due to swine flu fears. The development team for Kingdom Hearts has been confirmed as not attending this year’s show; a number of Koei employees are avoiding the show as well. Strange, considering recent reports which indicate that Swine Flu is in Japan, and on the rise.

Sony, on the other hand, will be attending this year’s E3 with no employees or development teams missing out on the fun. So no worries there, as you’ll still be able to see what Sony has in store for us.
