One of the biggest questions viewers have had about Westworld since it began was whether or not the HBO series would be expanding beyond a Wild West setting like its source material did. We’ve gotten hints of that possibility in the past, but the Season 2 trailer revealed a few dark shots of some historical Japanese-themed backgrounds and costumes. Now, Westworld‘s promotional viral marketing website for Delos Destinations has not only confirmed the name (“Shogun World”), but it has a description:
For those for whom Westworld is not enough, the true connoisseur of gore can indulge their fantasies with the slash of a katana. Modeled after Japan’s Edo period, Shogun World offers a chance for guests to embrace their inner warrior, in a landscape of highest beauty and darkest horror. Let your true self take shape in the land where self-discovery is an art form.
And an image!
Beyond that, there are sections on the site for Parks 3 through 6, which have “reservations closed to the public.” What could these other parks be, and will we ever see them explored on the series?
Let us know your thoughts in the comments; Westworld returns Sunday, April 22nd on HBO. In the meantime, check out these recent stories below:
