Funimation is now available on Nintendo Switch in the U.S. and Canada with plans to expand to the U.K., Ireland, Mexico and more countries in the coming months.

Click on the Funimation app to browse and watch hundreds of titles including “My Hero Academia,” “Attack on Titan Final Season,” “One Piece,” “Naruto” and “Megalobox,” plus classic anime including “Cowboy Bebop” and more.

Funimation is the first 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.

“We will always go where the community wants their anime, and Funimation is 100 percent committed to listening to and servicing fans on every platform,” says Kaliel Roberts, chief product officer, Funimation. “When Nintendo Switch was a possibility in front of us, we were a resounding ‘absolutely’ with the opportunity to further serve fans. 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.”
