After showing off footage back at Anime Expo last month, Studio TRIGGER and Netflix are back with another look Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. Based on CD PROJEKT RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 game and directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi (PROMARE, Kill la Kill), the series is coming to Netflix this September, and you can see more of how the 10-episode anime is shaping up below.
Here’s what TRIGGER said about the project when it was first revealed:
“We at TRIGGER are thrilled to work with CD PROJEKT RED to create a brand-new story set in the world of the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077. It’s a huge challenge to adapt this universe into an anime, but we are eager to face it head-on,” said Masahiko Otsuka, CEO, Studio TRIGGER. Director Hiroyuki Imaishi adds, “I’ve always loved cyberpunk as a genre, but always found it difficult to create as an original work. This is why I’m very excited to be working with CD PROJEKT RED on this project. It won’t be easy to please both game and anime fans, but I love a challenge, and I’m looking forward to the production. We’ll do our best to meet and exceed expectations.”
