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?
