Do you think Earthbound Beginnings’s location of “America” is referring to the American Continent itself, rather than the Country, the United States of America?


Arguments for being referential to the continent.

-Sorta has a Canada vibe.

-Misses a lot of American cultural markers, unlike Earthbound’s Eagleland & Mother 3’s New Pork City.


Arguments for being referential to the country.

-Seems to have an emphasis on it’s rural nature.

-Japan tends to associate America primarily with the United States (@Lone can dispute this).

I've never heard the continent referred to as just America アメリカ in Japanese. Usually we'd specify "North" or "Continent" or both.

Mother 1 is specified to take place in America アメリカ, so it refers specifically to the USA.
