The Cyberpunk 2077 practice retains going, regardless of its rocky protracted launch. Now that the sport’s been patched right into a playable (and fulfilling) state, and DLC is on the horizon, it’s the proper time for Netflix to launch that Edgerunners tie-in anime they supplied us a first look eventually month throughout their week lengthy TUDUM occasion.
Studio Set off, dealing with manufacturing on the collection alongside CD Projekt Crimson and greatest identified for Promare and Little Witch Academia, revealed the opening titles to Edgerunners on Saturday throughout their panel at Anime Expo in Los Angeles. Set to “This Ffire” by Franz Ferdinand, the opening is a visible feast—like their work typically is—and is heavy on the yellow that Cyberpunk has grow to be infamously identified for. Much like the opening for final yr’s Tremendous Crooks, every part within the opening simply appears and sounds nice, a lot that you’ll doubtless not skip the opening throughout the collection’ 10-episode first season. And if that doesn’t catch your consideration, the collection’ soundtrack being dealt with by Silent Hill’s Akira Yamaoka doubtless will.
Edgerunners is ready in in the identical universe as the sport, and by extension Mike Pondsmith and R. Talsorian Video games’ tabletop RPG. The anime tells the story of David Martinez (voiced by Zach Aguilar of Demon Slayer fame). As a road child trying to survive in Night time Metropolis, David opts to grow to be a mercenary outlaw, aka a cyberpunk. The setup sounds kind of like that of 2077, with David being an precise character with historical past on the planet of Night time Metropolis fairly than 2077’s protagonist V, who the participant needed to create from prime to backside. The collection can even give attention to a netrunner named Lucy, and the 2 will inevitably cross paths sooner or later throughout the season.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will hit Netflix in September.
