Swine flu halts Capcom Japan travel

Publisher skipping Nordic game festival, possibly E3

Capcom Japan has seemingly cancelled all of its international travel plans amid fears of employees catching swine flu.

A spokesperson for the upcoming Nordic Game expo in Sweden has confirmed that Capcom producer Keji Infaune has cancelled his planned appearance "due to restrictions on foreign travel amid fears of an influenza outbreak".


Even Worse, a Capcom spokesperson has said that its Japanese arm is "undecided" on whether or not it will be attending next month's E3 in Los Angeles.

US and UK team however will still have a presence at the show, says Develop. They're not scared.

The E3 organisers themselves, ESA, expressed fears over a swine flu outbreak, stating last month that "public health officials are taking all appropriate steps and we continue to follow their direction on all measures."

We're all going to die. Like in Raccoon City.
