Back in 2020, CD Projekt Red announced that it had teamed up with Netflix and Japanese animation studio, Studio Trigger, to produce an anime set in the Cyberpunk universe. This week, a new trailer for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners dropped and so far, it is shaping up to be fantastic.
After releasing a first look trailer in June, Studio Trigger has produced a new trailer for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, introducing us to all the key characters and giving us an early look at some great action scenes.
Studio Trigger is well known amongst anime fans, producing series like Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia, as well as films like Promare. The studio was founded by former Gainax (known for Evangelion, FLCL and Gurren Lagann) employees in 2011 and has made a name for itself with strong artistic direction and excellent visuals. Trigger's style shines through in both trailers we've had for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and it appears they will be going all in on the darker side of the Cyberpunk universe.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will be a standalone, 10-episode story centred around a Street Kid trying to get by in Night City. The series will release on Netflix next month.

KitGuru Says: Cyberpunk 2077 didn't meet on all expectations, but there is no denying that Night City is a fascinating place with a lot of interesting stories to uncover. Edgerunners is shaping up to be a great showcase of that.
