Video game franchise Cyberpunk 2077 is finally getting an anime titled “Edgerunners” that will soon be released on Netflix within the next few months.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will be a 10-episode anime story set in the world of Cyberpunk 2077, created by CD PROJEKT RED in cooperation with Studio Trigger. According to the Cyberpunk blog, the anime will premiere on Netflix in September 2022.
The idea of making an anime based on the game came to light even before it was released. Now the wait is finally over as the fans will get to experience the Cyberpunk Night City world in an exciting form of entertainment.
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 known as a cyberpunk.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Official Teaser
As clearly seen in the teaser, we expect a decent story including detailed character designs not forgetting some exciting action-packed scenes to spice it all up. I am definitely excited about the anime and can’t wait for September to come.
One can only hope that the anime will be good and it won’t end up being a disappointment especially when it comes to things like it being a little too cringe and having overused character tropes, not forgetting generic protagonists.
