A big decision was made just earlier today.
Me and Multibrawlr have officially decided that since there is so substantial evidence for The House of the Dead 2' taking place in Venice, and instead is based inside a fictional one that was derivative rather than exact, we are changing anything that says "Venice, Italy" to "unnamed/unknown city" or "unnamed, Venetian-inspired city."
We would love the extra help. So many articles and pages are littered with this erroneous assumption that we're not sure how long it could take us to completely remove it.
We appreciate all your contributions to making this a great wiki.
