This will not be the first Kin-Yoobi Con to go all digital. Their 2020 event had to go all digital due to the pandemic.
The announcement comes after a number of conventions announced they are going all digital or pushed back to 2022. E3, San Diego Comic Con, Crunchyroll Expo and Anime Expo all announced an all digital event for 2021. Other conventions have made the choice to cancel their 2021.
