Monster Hunter and Resident Evil developer Capcom has implemented a remote working policy in Japan as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The studio has told employees in the region to work from home until at least May 6 to help protect staff and slow the spread of coronavirus.

"Capcom is committed to prioritizing the safety of employees, their families, our business partners and the public," reads a short statement. "We will closely monitor the plans and policies set forth by national and local governments in order to quickly act in working to prevent the spread of COVID-19."

The decision comes after the Japanese government declared a state of emergency on April 7, with the Governor of Tokyo also asking people to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary for the next four weeks.
