Little China is a sub-district of Watson in Cyberpunk 2077.

Overview

Parts of Little China used to be an extension of Downtown, during the Rebuilding in the 2040s there were plans to make it a second City Center. The corporations built some skyscrapers and top quality medical clinics known as the Med Center. It used to be the best place in Night City to spend money on body augmentations legally. In the late 2040s the sub-district flooded with Asian immigrants, mostly from Chinese diaspora, hence the name change. During the next few decades, Little China became overpopulated and its exclusive tone to the current more ethnic feel.

In 2077 Central Little China resembles the poorer areas elsewhere in Night City; however the food, shops, neon lights, lingo, and flavor are all distinctly Chinese. The castes are all mixed up now with living blocks beside affluent condo buildings, and illegal gambling dens next to the offices of legitimate business. Low and mid tier come here on occasion for cheap fun in the casinos and strip clubs, and to mix with the poor and homeless on the streets. No gang claims territory of Little China, but the Tyger Claws often come here to have fun.[1]

Behind the scenes

Little China is a vibrant town-within-a-town grafted onto the remains of Watson's abandoned business center. When big money bailed, immigrants poured into and remodeled the now-affordable structures. The result is a bustling, chaotic space, a skeleton of early-century corporate architecture spliced with elements of mid-century Kitsch. Little China, to the south especially, remains vertical, but its office buildings have been repurposed for housing and small-scale industry, with new additions plopped on top or extended over them. Its residents live out their entire lives in the district, or even in one building: one might sleep on the balcony, repair cyberlimbs in the former supply closet and get grub from a noodle chef working out of the kitchen of a single former corporate office. There is plenty of entertainment on offer in Little China. It is crammed with restaurants and gambling dens that cater to tighter budgets than Downtown or Japantown. When night falls, suits share its streets with fixers, mercenaries and gang members, united in their search for cheap thrills. Yet it is primarily a district run by and for locals, a place whose vibrant-yet-grimy Kitsch style emerged organically, not for the benefit of tourists.
