I figured you’d be one of the best people to ask this. Hopefully this will be seen Tiamat or somebody with access to Japanese Capcom canon material…
Is there an official geographic location given for Guile? From the (detailed but not to scale) SF2 char select maps it looks like it could be anywhere from Virginia to Georgia… Are these maps supposed to be the origins, or else just where they choose to fight? And is Guile’s rank really a Colonel? I’ve also seen Captain, Commander, Lieutenant and Major…
And while we’re about it, does Ken have a location? Ignoring Seattle from the noncanon Animated Movie, and San Francisco from SFa2, could it be NY or Boston?
And presumably it’s safe to assume Balrog fights out of Nevada? I don’t belive he’s Mike from SF1, but if he was, then that would put him in Dakota…
I’ve also heard the following, based on Japanese SF2/SFA background descriptions. Could they be the supposed origins of the characters?
Ryu: Genbugahara? or Suzaku Castle?
Honda: Higashikomagata (in Tokyo?)
Chun Li: Beijing or Zhidan?
Dhalsim: Jaunpur, (on the banks of the Ganges)
Vega: Valencia, Spain?
Charlie: KY, IL, IN?
Also, could Metro City actually be NY? The ingame progress map labels Uptown and the Atlantic Ocean, has a park in the middle and a Slum to the south (Brooklyn?), and it looks like the twin towers are drawn. And there’s even the Statue of Liberty featured in level 5…
I guess this is all a bit pedantic, but I’m curious and interesed as to the specifics… Maybe it would help if somebody captured 2 screengrabs of the Alpha 3 World Tour map (after all countries have been completed)?
