Studio Trigger also showed the show’s first episode to attendees and confirmed that Zach Aguilar, the English voice actor of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba’s Tanjiro Kamado, will be providing the voice of David Martinez.
Martinez is a street thug who is “trying to survive in the city of the future dominated by technology and body modification. He has everything to lose and chooses to be an edgerunner, aka cyberpunk.”
The series has ten episodes and also features a netrunner named Lucy. In a recent clip we saw that part of the story takes place in the same location as The Pickup mission from Cyberpunk 2077. That is the mission where V and Jackie have to steal the robot spy spider from the Maelstrom gang.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will be released on Netflix in September. Here’s how David Martinez was already referenced in Cyberpunk 2077.
