Earlier today, Nintendo announced their speakers for E3 2009, but strangely, the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto was missing from the list. But don’t worry: He will be there. The company shared in a statement that the swine flu has not impacted plans for E3 and Miyamoto will host a roundtable following Nintendo’s press event in a statement released not too long ago.

“Nintendo has been carefully monitoring the situation worldwide and is taking appropriate steps to minimize health risks for everyone. As of now, Nintendo has no travel bans in place, but is instructing employees whose travel cannot wait to take precautions, such as wearing protective masks and washing their hands frequently…Video game fans can rest assured that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata will be presenting during the company’s E3 Expo media briefing the morning of June 2, and that legendary Nintendo video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto will host a developer roundtable event later that day.”

“Rest assured that there are big plans in store to get the word out on The Conduit, both in the enhusiast and in the mainstream press. There will be TV ads coming very soon. It’s all part of our plan for world domination.” – Josh Olson, Producer High Voltage Software

I’m really glad to hear that the game is going to be publicized in a number of ways. TV ads are a significant step in promoting a product, so hopefully gamers will see the commercials and then pick up the game. The Conduit could use any and all support it can get!
