I don't understand. What indicates that they have vast amounts of pride over their homeland? Their Italian plumber mascot, or their sexy blue eyed blonde (Medieval hero)/(space heroine)? The Eskimo twins? Psychic baseball player?

Ness is blatantly Japanese-styled, and the Japanese love baseball.

Wii suggested it was for everyone. The Wii U suggests it's for everyone and you, and when you say it repeatedly you believe that you are a firetruck. ~Farimir77

Ness is totally a not-Japanese name D: Plus, his mother and sister totally aren't Asian. Maybe his father is though. Eagleland seems like a parody of America though, not Japan. America loves them some baseball too (or at least stereotypically we have).

Mother is a reinterpreting of America, I agree, it's just to someone unaware of it, they're more likely to see Ness's Japanese qualities.

As for baseball, we introduced it to them at some point, I believe.

I always thought it was funny how the Mother series was pretty much based around American culture (hippies lol). Yet, we have only got one game...
