The Cyberpunk 2077 practice retains going, regardless of its rocky protracted launch.

Studio Trigger, dealing with manufacturing on the collection alongside CD Projekt Red and greatest recognized for Promare and Little Witch Academia, revealed the opening titles to Edgerunners on Saturday throughout their panel at Anime Expo in Los Angeles. Set to “This Ffire” by Franz Ferdinand, the opening is a visible feast—like their work typically is—and is heavy on the yellow that Cyberpunk has grow to be infamously known for. Similar to the opening for final yr’s Super Crooks, all the pieces within the opening simply appears and sounds nice, a lot that you’ll seemingly not skip the opening throughout the collection’ 10-episode first season.

The setup sounds roughly like that of 2077, with David being an precise character with historical past on the earth of Night City fairly than 2077’s protagonist V, who the participant needed to create from high to backside. The collection will even deal with a netrunner named Lucy, and the 2 will inevitably cross paths in some unspecified time in the future throughout the season.
