Cyberpunk 2077 brought one of gaming's most colorful universes to life, and now, Netflix is game to expand the world a bit further. It wasn't long ago fans learned Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was in the works and planned to bring an original story to the hit video game title. And now, fans have gotten a first look at the anime ahead of Netflix's Geeked Week in June.
The look came courtesy of Netflix today as the streaming service shared a promo for its Geeked Week festivities. It was there the reel shone a spotlight on Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and its colorful aesthetic suits Studio Trigger just fine.
As you can see above, the stills don't give away much, but we get a clear feel for what's to come. One still shows a motorbike riding through a high-tech city while another follows two people looking over the Earth from space. Studio Trigger's cell-shaded animation is on full display in these shots, and they look gorgeous in motion. So as you can imagine, fans are eager to get a full trailer for the anime.
Right now, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is expected to debut more goodies at Netflix Geeked Week come June 8th. If you want to know more about the anime adaptation and its impressive crew, you can read up on its official synopsis below:
"Cyberpunk: Edgerunners tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner-a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.
