Cyberpunk 2077: Netflix unveils the crazy credits of its series adapted from the video game


Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the Netflix series based on the video game Cyberpunk 2077, has revealed its credits and offers big names in Japanese animation.

Despite the sad launch fiasco of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt is not done with Night City. While the Polish studio did not experience the huge success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt(far from it) for his futuristic RPG, he did not drop his game by trying, somehow, to catch up with his mistakes. Today, the game is enjoying a revival with record sales and the promise of new DLC. The icing on the cake, an animated series produced by CD Projekt is coming to Netflix for the start of the school year: Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.

If you're one of those disappointed with the Cyberpunk license or you've never been interested in it, don't miss a new project. For this animated series, CD Projekt is teaming up with the eminent Studio Trigger (Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia) who have just returned from another collaboration: the very inventive Star Wars: Visions on Disney+. The Japanese animation studio itself already has something to arouse curiosity, but that's not all. Netflix recently revealed the credits for Cyberpunk: Edgerunnersas well as the names of the talents who will be working on the series.

This superb credits already gives off a aesthetic at the crossroads between old school anime, the touch of Trigger and the world of Cyberpunk 2077, while accompanying the song by Franz Ferdinand: This Fire. Beyond this very promising first glimpse of the series, it is the names displayed that excite the imagination and the impatience as to the final result.

Thus we discover that the director of the series will be none other than Hiroyuki Imaishi, co-founder of Studio Trigger and also director of Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill or Promare. This very big name in Japanese animation comes with great talents including Yoshiyuki Kaneko (Promare) as assistant director, Hiromi Wakabayashi (Kill la Kill strong>) as artistic director, Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia) in character design or Akira Yamaoka, composer of all Silent Hill, in the original soundtrack of the series .

With an absolutely crazy credits in its promises, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners goes from a derivative product to a truly exciting project. This new Netflix series could well have the potential to delight fans of Japanese animation while sublimating the universe created by Mike Pondsmith in a unique style.

The series will run for ten episodes and will follow the misadventures of our protagonist, a mercenary desperate to survive in the hostile city of night and deviant technologies. We can't wait to see more: Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will be broadcast on Netflix next September.
