'Cyberpunk: Edgerunners' Confirms Release Date In Action-Packed NSFW Trailer

After more than two years since the project's original announcement, Netflix has finally announced the release date for Cyberpunk 2077's anime adaptation, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, in a new NSFW trailer. Set in the same Night City location as the open-world game from CD Projekt Red, the new anime follows the journey of a street kid fighting for survival in "a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future." To make a place for himself, he decides to become a mercenary outlaw known as edgerunner or cyberpunk.

The season will feature 10 episodes, each running for 30 minutes, and Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill's Hiroyuki Imaishi will serve as the series' director over at Trigger. He's joined by Little Witch Academia's Yoh Yoshinari as character designer and animation director, Kill la Kill's Hiromi Wakabayashi as creative director, Star Wars: Visions' Masahiko Otsuka and SSSS.Gridman's Yoshiki Usa as scriptwriters, and Hiroyuki Kaneko as assistant director.

For fans of the Cyberpunk franchise, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will hit Netflix on September 13.

In other anime news, Spy x Family is returning this October.
