Nintendo president Satoru Iwata won’t be attending E3 next week on advice from his physician, according to a report from Polygon. The specific reasoning behind the physicians advice was not given, but the 54 year-old Iwata was advised not to travel overseas in the immediate future.
Despite this, according to Nintendo of America, it’s business as usual for Iwata, who will continue his normal duties for the company while he remains in Japan. According to one representative, he will continue to remain actively involved in all of Nintendo’s duties at the show.
“As always, he will be actively involved in all of Nintendo’s activities at the show.”
