Cyberpunk 2077 Netflix Anime Gets NSFW Trailer, Arrives in September

A NSFW trailer for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the Cyberpunk 2077 Netflix anime, has revealed a September 11 release date. Somewhere between Ghost in the Shell, FLCL, and Redline, the two-minute sneak peek goes through a series of colorful, bombastic, and blistering scenes that would make Harley Quinn blush. If you do watch the trailer posted after the break, make sure that you have some privacy as the video has mature content, not to mention strobing effects that might affect photosensitive viewers. You have been warned.

Some info on the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners story and production





Separate from the story of the Cyberpunk 2077 game, the anime is a standalone, 10-part series about a street kid who decides to stay alive by becoming a mercenary edgerunner. As a cyberpunk, he will be able to survive and hopefully thrive in the tech-crazed, body mod-obsessed Night City.

Working on the series since 2018, developer CD Projekt RED is producing Edgerunners alongside showrunner Rafal Jaki, the author of The Witcher: Ronin manga. Studio Trigger is the Japan-based animation company behind the show, with director Hiroyuki Imaishi already showing his expertise in the trailer with his past work like Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill. And to put the cherry on top, Akira Yamaoka from the Silent Hill series is the composer of the original score.

From prior trailers of the anime, fans of the game will recognize the UI and the weapon sound effects throughout this flashy adaptation. The art style, voicework, and soundtrack all already look on point, so we’ll have to wait and see if the anime lives up to the hype. Either way, let’s just be happy that they didn’t go with all the trendy live-action adaptations that Netflix can’t seem to get enough of these days, like the widely panned Resident Evil show.

In other news, Assassin’s Creed Rift has been officially subtitled Mirage and has a spring 2023 release window, and MultiVersus looks like it might get Big Chungus as a fighter or skin.
