Cyberpunk 2077 was a disappointment. Cyberpunk Edgerunners is not looking to repeat the mistake. Also, Cyberpunk Edgerunners can't afford to repeat the mistake, because unlike a video game, an anime can't be patched and improved upon for a whole year. What you see is what you get, and, so far, what we're seeing looks pretty good.

Cyberpunk Edgerunners Reveals Title Sequence

A little too much style and sauce? I don't know, and I can't really comment, since I've never been an intro fan. I love anime, but I skip intros religiously. Still for people that are deep into the intro game, this is probably a nice first teaser for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.

The title sequence was revealed at the Anime Expo, currently taking place, and those in attendance also got to see the first episode of Cyberpunk Edgerunners. The anime will revolve around Martinez, who is described as a kid from the streets "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 other protagonist is Lucy, a netrunner that will also feature throughout the anime's 10 episodes, which will take place in the same location as The Pickup mission from Cyberpunk 2077. Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is due to be released in September 2022, so... it won't be long.
