Dead Rising 2 (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) executive producer Keiji Inafune has now officially canceled his E3 appearance. With the top guy not attending, Dead Rising 2 will also not be making an appearance at the event.
Speaking to Kotaku, Capcom's Chris Kramer said that Inafune's cancellation is due to Japanese government restrictions that arose because of a swine flu outbreak in Osaka. Capcom's main headquarters is located in the area.
While development on Dead Rising 2 is being handled by the Canada-based Blue Castle, Inafune has kept a close eye on the project.
Kramer also clarified that Dead Rising 2 is the only game they've pulled out. "Dead Rising 2 is the only game we won't be able to showcase at E3, because it's at an early stage of development and the team is not co****table having anyone else demo the code," he said.
