During today’s Night City Wire episode, CD Projekt Red revealed a new anime project, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. In a collaboration with famed anime studio, Studio Trigger, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is set to take place in Night City but outside of the events of Cyberpunk 2077.
For those unfamiliar with Studio Triggers pedigree in anime, they have brought us classics like Kill La Kill and Little Witch Academia, just to name a few. Their latest film, Promare, was a critical success and is one worth watching. Having watched it myself at an early viewing in 2018, it’s brilliance will dazzle you.
“When we began this project, we were certain we did not want to make a recreation of the game. Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is a standalone story, set in the same universe. The stage is still Night City, but everything else is totally new. New characters, new story.”
