The always engrossing Star Wars Explained are at it again, dissecting the saga and listing the knowledge nuggets and info contained within various elements of the saga, in this case the first episode of Vader Immortal.
Some of the things we learn include visits to Shadow Market on Cloud City and mentions of Nar Shaddaa, Bakura, Wayland and more. Kotaku take a look at the episode.
Some other interesting bits of Star Wars lore included in the game include a reference to the city world of Nar Shaddaa, a location seen often in older EU games and books. The planets of Wayland and Bakura, first created for older EU books are mentioned, which makes me wonder if Lucasfilm has any future plans for these planets. Something I found very curious is that your droid partner explains that the Emperor keeps a “storehouse of treasures” on Wayland, which was true in the older EU and is now, apparently, canon.
Players can also find a new artifact that references the planet of Jedha, which was seen in the film Rogue One. The artifact was stolen, but the people on the planet don’t mind because they believe it was cursed.
Finally, my favorite little Easter Egg involves a training droid. This particular droid is actually voiced by Pablo Hidalgo, a member of the Lucasfilm Story Group who has been around for a long time and has a deep knowledge of Star Wars. He has also appeared in episodes of The Star Wars Show.
