Regardless of how you like the game, the world of Cyberpunk 2077 is just so lush and colourful, that there’s so many places a story can go. Netflix has just dropped a trailer for their anime spinoff called Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and it’s filled with that signature animation from Studio Trigger.
Here’s the official description:
The series tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in Night City — a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he stays alive by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.
Like I said, the world of Cyberpunk was already colourful enough by itself, but if you add that animation from Trigger and some great action—you’re sure to have a hit at your hands. If you’re not familiar with Trigger, they’re the studio behind anime hits like Kill la Kill, Darling in the FranXX, BNA, and Little Witch Academia.
Since this is just the teaser, we should expect a new full trailer to give us a better look at the characters in the next few months. Based on what we’ve seen though, they’ve really added a unique twist to the world, and I can’t wait to see more of these Edgerunners. Hopefully we get something around July, but that’s just wishful thinking on my part.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners comes to Netflix this September.
