The Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime was so popular it’s invading the tabletop RPG next

  • November 10, 2022

Studio Trigger’s anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners (opens in new tab) seems to have revitalized a lot of people’s interest in Night City as a setting, with mods based on it taking over Cyberpunk 2077’s mod scene and now publisher R. Talsorian announcing a Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Mission Kit for the tabletop RPG.

R. Talsorian says the kit will be “Made in conjunction with CD PROJEKT RED using the Cyberpunk RED tabletop roleplaying game engine”. It sounds like the kind of introductory set aimed at players who are new to the pen-and-paper RPG, like the Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit was. “The Cyberpunk Edgerunners Mission Kit will guide fans of the series new to tabletop roleplaying through the process of telling their own stories in Night City”, the announcement says. “At the same time, existing players of Cyberpunk RED will get their first glimpse into the cyberware, firepower, and netrunning skills of the 2077 era.”
