When I first looked at the description of the game, I thought it would be in Hong Kong as there were Chinese characters on the helmet (there are Chinese characters in Japanese too) and the city was once known for its neon glow.

In-game, I noticed that several neon signs were lifted from HK, maybe as a homage to the neon lights that once shone on the streets.
