We are so happy for you anime fans! Crunchyroll announced today that they now have a dedicated app available for Nintendo Switch users who want to keep up with anime on the go.
Epic Games' Unreal Engine technology will allow Nintendo Switch owners to stream Crunchyroll content offline. Crunchyroll, the latest addition to the Nintendo Switch's limited collection of streaming/video content app apps, follows the release of the Pokemon TV App.
Crunchyroll confirmed that the Switch app would allow users to stream their favorite anime while the console is in docked, handheld, or tabletop modes. This will allow fans to enjoy streaming Crunchyroll's anime wherever they like on the Nintendo Switch.
A new streaming service is always a win on the Nintendo Switch. However, some Nintendo Switch users are still annoyed that Netflix, the largest streaming service, doesn't have a dedicated app. Nintendo claimed that streaming services such as Netflix would be available on its hybrid console “in the time,” but that was in 2017. Now is a good time to support Netflix with the news that both the Wii U eShops and the 3DS will be shutting down in the early part of next year.
