Trailer For Altered Carbon: Resleeved Looks Like One Long Cheesy Video Game Cutscene

If you've already finished Season 2 of Netflix's Altered Carbon, there's a new animated movie coming that looks... interesting?


The story of Takeshi Kovacs isn't just contained within both seasons of Altered Carbon on Netflix. While Season 2 of the sci-fi series had a very different vibe than the first, there is an animated movie coming soon called Altered Carbon: Resleeved. The first trailer has dropped, and did we somehow all get sucked into a cheesy video game cutscene?

Further following the adventures of Kovacs, he investigates the death of a yakuza boss and has to protect a tattoo artist while doing so. Check out the trailer for the movie below.

Why it feels like a video game cutscene is because the film is co-written by Dai Satô--along with Tsukasa Kondo. Satô has worked on a few video games in the past, including Resident Evil: Revelations 2, E.X. Troopers, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Additionally, he's written episodes of the anime series Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Spance Dandy, and more.

The film takes place in what Netflix is calling "the expanded universe of Altered Carbon" and hits the streaming service on March 19. Additionally, Netflix has something from the world of anime arriving this week. The series Beastars arrives on Friday. Based on the manga series of by Paru Itagaki, the anime follows a world where anthropomorphic animals live. Legoshi is the center of the story, a timid wolf who is a student at the Cherryton Academy, and after a murder at the school, there is a division between carnivores and herbivores.
