Square Enix is the latest Japanese publisher to pull back on its E3 attendance thanks to swine flu fears, telling GI it’s now only going to send a skeleton crew from Japan.

“A limited number of executives/employees from Square Enix’s headquarters in Japan will be attending E3 this year, given the recent worldwide spread of H1N1 flu,” said the company in a statement.

Capcom and Koei are also cowering in Japan thanks to the recent pig disease worry.
