Netflix has revealed the opening title sequence for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the upcoming anime set in the world of Cyberpunk 2077.
The “so-stylish-it-hurts opening” is accompanied by Franz Ferdinand’s This Fffire and was shared during the Trigger 10 Year Anniversary & Announcement Panel at Anime Expo 2022. You can watch it by clicking here.
Alongside the opening credits, Studio Trigger also showed the first episode of the series to those in attendance and confirmed that Zach Aguilar, the English voice actor of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba’s Tanjiro Kamado, will be lending his voice to main character David Martinez.
Martinez is a street kid who is “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.”
The 10-episode series will also focus on a netrunner named Lucy and a recent official clip revealed that part of the story will take place in the same location as The Pickup mission from Cyberpunk 2077. For those unfamiliar, that is the mission where V and Jackie have to pick up the robot spy-spider from the Maelstrom gang.
