On August 1, 2022, Netflix released a new trailer and key visual for Studio Trigger’s upcoming anime TV series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, inspired by CD PROJEKT RED’s game Cyberpunk 2077. The anime is set to premiere in September 2022.

You can watch the trailer on the official Netflix YouTube channel here:

The trailer teases, “Welcome to the night city where chrome trumps flesh.” Immediately we see the police fighting powerful cyborgs. Next we see a young David attending school. Later, we see young David’s mother driving him somewhere in a car and telling him, “You must become an elite and reach the top of Arasaka Tower.”

Unfortunately, right after this, David’s mother is gunned down right before his eyes and he can’t do anything about it. At this point, we understand more about David’s motivations for wanting to be “chipped” later in the series and learn more about his backstory.

The main characters are highlighted: rowdy David, badass Maine, tomboy Dorio, cold and deadly Kiwi, villain Pilar, hot-headed and feisty Rebecca, and femme fatale Lucy. We see David tell Lucy, “I promise to take you to the moon,” which makes Lucy kiss him!
