Is there a trailer for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners?
Yes there is, and you can watch it here:
We are getting Bladerunner vibes at the start of the trailer, but this is a lull before the storm that bookends this intense vibrant trailer. Catch a quick glimpse of the main players in the story and get ready to hit the pause button as things go by pretty fast here, as the usual mayhem, violence, and busts through your screen and enhance your tech.
What else do we know?
The series is a spin-off from the video game Cyberpunk 2077. The series will be a standalone story, so a great way to include fans of the game, and just lovers of animated adventures. It seems that we will be seeing things through the eyes of David Martinez, a street kid that has to adapt to survive. Our other lead character Lucy seems to be a hacker, and we presume that David and Lucy will team up at an early point in the narrative. It appears to us that this will not be a family show, and the trailer seems to show a lot of shoot-em-up violence, leading us to the conclusion that this animated series may be for a mature audience.
