Funimation App coming to Nintendo Switch

Written by Ross Locksley on 17 Dec 2020

Funimation has announced that they'll be bringing anime to Nintendo Switch, by releasing a brand new app that will unleash the full service for gamers on the go.

The app will make them the only anime service available on the console, with the recent news that they've acquired Crunchyroll as well, chances are good that the catalogue will be expanding very shortly!

From the Press Release:

 The Funimation Nintendo Switch App marks the official unveiling of our latest Funimation App design, a refreshing rework of the anime app you know and love. This new update includes:

  • A brand-new look and feel
  • All-new curations and a “My Anime” page
  • Anime launch schedule
  • And much, much more!

While the app debuts on Nintendo Switch first, it will be rolling out to other platforms, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and more in the coming months.

At present the App is only available in the US and Canada, but Funimation has confirmed that the UK and Ireland will be following in the coming months.

A video explaining the service is available below:
