The Cyberpunk 2077 anime now has an official trailer, and there’s a lot to take in. Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, an animated series produced by the studio behind Kill la Kill and Fire Emblem Fates, features a retrograde level of hyperviolence and a new perspective on Cyberpunk The Night City of 2077.
In Cyberpunk lore, “edgerunners” are people who live on the margins of society, making their way through engaging in legally and ethically questionable activities that usually involve a high level of risk. The 10-episode standalone series, which debuts on Netflix this fall, tells the story of David, who risks everything to become one of Night City’s outlaw mercenaries.
The trailer itself is a barrage of intense visuals, starting with a hail of bullets and blood and moving towards David writhing in bed as he discovers a new type of braindance. “You must become an elite and reach the top floor of Arasaka Tower,” a voice informs us.
Probably best to watch it for yourself, but be aware there’s some NSFW footage in the trailer.
The trailer includes brief introductions to the rest of the Edgerunners cast, including Maine, Dorio, Kiwi, Pilar, Rebecca, and Lucy. edge runners will be available on Netflix in September.
