Crunchyroll recently announced that the platform is now available on the Nintendo Switch. Combining the best of both living room and mobile experiences, fans can enjoy more than 1,000 series and 30,000 episodes on the Crunchyroll app through their Nintendo Switch console either docked at home or taken on the go, complete with offline viewing support.
With this launch, Crunchyroll will become the first streaming application to offer offline viewing on Nintendo Switch and one of a limited number of SVOD apps on the gaming console. Fans can access the Crunchyroll app to enjoy ad-supported anime or through their Crunchyroll subscription to enjoy unlimited ad-free anime, with simulcast series streaming day and date with premiere in Japan.
Created for the global anime community and powered by Epic Games’ Unreal Engine technology, the application allows users to enjoy their anime in TV mode, with their console docked and plugged into a television, in tabletop mode, which allows fans to share their anime with others, or in handheld mode, to pick up and experience with Joy-Con controllers attached.
Crunchyroll is also available through iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, Roku, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Chromecast.
