Studio Trigger is an anime production company that includes former members of studio Gainax. The latest update is that this production company is producing Cyberpunk 2077 anime which is set to release on Netflix in 2022. It will be called Cyberpunk: edgerunners and its supposedly a standalone story set in the world of developer CD Projekt Red’s upcoming action game.
This is what it will look like as per the official description:
CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in 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.
Although the members of Trigger include members of seminal anime productions like Neon Genesis Evangelion, it is actually more popular because of its highly stylistic, unusual narratives and experimental artistic styles. Most of the famous works produced by this company are Kill la Kill, Darling in the Franxx, and the recent blockbuster film Promare.
The cast and crew working on Cyberpunk: Edgerunner is another reason why this anime production will be super successful. The studios have hired the best talents in the industry like Hiroyuki Imaishi is on board as the director. He previously worked on Gianax’s Gurren Lagann, Promare and Kill la Kill. Character designers include Yoh Yoshinari and Yuto Kaneko whereas the screenplay is adapted by Yoshiki USA and Masahiko Otsuka. The original score is set to be composed by Akira Yamaoka who previously worked on Silent Hill.
Cyberpunk 2077 will launch in November on all streaming platforms but the production has its own set of delays as the creators want to elevate the experience of the audience and fix all the bugs before it’s released.
Obviously, it’s going to be the biggest gaming event of the last decade, but interestingly, its launch will coincide with the next-gen console launches from both Sony and Microsoft. This is truly great news for all the gaming fans around the world!
