Last weekend, the anime streaming service Funimation teased a Nintendo Switch app and now it’s been officially confirmed.
The very first (and only) anime streaming app on the hybrid system will arrive in the United States and Canada on 15th December. In addition to this, it’s “coming soon” to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Mexico and various other countries.
You’ll never put it down again. Anime arrives on the Nintendo Switch for the very first time via the refreshing new look of the Funimation App. Coming tomorrow! @NintendoAmerica

In celebration of this announcement, Funimation has given the app a “refreshing rework”. If you were already making use of it on other platforms, you’ll notice it now has a brand-new look and feel, all-new curations, a “My Anime” page, a launch schedule – so you can keep up to date with all the latest eps, and much more.
The release of the Funimation app on the Nintendo Switch will be followed by a rollout on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
This service, as previously noted, allows you to binge up to “13,000 hours” of popular series. There are shows like My Hero Academia, Fairy Tail, Attack on Titan and classics like Initial D. Will you be adding the Funimation app to your Switch HOME Menu? Let us know in the comments.
