FUNimation to Launch as the Only Anime App on the Nintendo Switch

FUNimation, the leading distributor of anime globally, will be available on Nintendo Switch beginning December 15, 2020. With FunimationNow on Nintendo Switch, it’s no longer necessary to put down the gaming console to enjoy your favorite anime. Simply click on the Funimation App, browse and enjoy hundreds of titles including global hits My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan Final Season, and One Piece, to fan favorites Naruto and Megalobox, and classic anime including Cowboy Bebop and many, many more. Funimation is available on Nintendo Switch in the United States and Canada with plans to expand to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Mexico and more countries in the coming months.

Funimation now becomes the only anime app on Nintendo Switch and only the second SVOD app on Nintendo Switch. Funimation is also now available on all major gaming devices (including PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S and X launched in November 2020).

“We will always go where the community wants their anime, and FUNimation is 100% committed to listening to and servicing fans on every platform. When Nintendo Switch was a possibility in front of us, we were a resounding ‘absolutely’ with the opportunity to further serve fans,” said Kaliel Roberts, Chief Product Officer at FUNimation. “Our teams approached the partnership with a shared goal to create a uniquely engaging app experience built for anime fans. That passionate approach paid off with a compelling and immersive touchpoint that was purpose-built specifically for our audience.”
