A new anime series sharing a setting with Cyberpunk 2077 will debut at the Netflix Geeked Week 2022 showcase.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is a spin-off of Cyberpunk 2077, and shares the game’s basis in the Cyberpunk pen-and-paper RPG. It will focus on the story of a Streetkid struggling to survive in Night City, a place obsessed with technology and body modification. With nothing to lose, they become an Edgerunner, an mercenary fixer that operates outside the law.

The series is being produced by Studio Trigger, which animated BNA: Brand New Animal, Promare, SSSS.Gridman, and Kill la Kill, among other things. As a project linked to the studio’s 10th anniversary, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will be directed by studio founder Hiroyuki Imaishi, who directed Kill la Kill, and also directed Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann prior to founding Trigger. Character designer Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia), writer Masahiko Ohtsuka, and composer Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill) are also on board.
