Funimation Addresses Rumors of Nintendo Switch App

Anime streaming company Funimation addresses rumors of their FunimationNow not appearing on the Nintendo Switch console.

The inaccurate report came from a fan’s social media post. Funimation expressed interest in developing the app for the Nintendo Switch based on audience demand, but clarified that there aren’t any plans at this time.

The incorrect announcement occurred on the C2E2 event held Friday, and the company provided a recent statement on the matter.


Funimation currently has their streaming application on several video game consoles—PS4, PS3, Xbox One—along with other electronic devices.

FunimationNow has undergone major upgrades from its previous software versions and only time will tell if the company does decide to proceed with advancing onto the Nintendo Switch.
