Netflix is coming with an animated series based on Cyberpunk 2077. The intro was shown during the Anime Expo 2022. Check out the teaser of the series down below!
The anime was announced by Netflix in 2020. The development is in the hands of Japanese Studio Trigger, known for anime such as Kill La Kill and Little Witch Academia. CD Projekt Red, the developer of the game based on Cyberpunk 2077, also lends a hand. The soundtrack is composed by AKira Yamaoka, known for the Silent Hill games.
The show will have its own story with characters that do not appear in the game. However, the series will have the same setting – it also takes place in the futuristic Night City.
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.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is set to hit Netflix in September.
