Nintendo Rolls out Anime App for Wii-U Users Today


If you’re a fan of anime and a Wii-U owner, it might be your lucky day. The Crunchyroll app is coming to the Wii-U today and will provide thousands of anime shows to Wii-U users that sign up for a membership on the application.

Many popular anime are available with the service — Naruto, Bleach and One Piece to name a few. New users can sign up for a 14 day trial, but will be asked to pay a monthly fee from $6.95 to $11.95 depending on the package they opt for. There is also a free service, but free users will not have access to the full library, or be allowed to stream in HD — they will also be subjected to ads. The $6.95 package is the same, but includes HD-streaming, and the $11.95, will include their full library, HD-streaming and have no ads.

Because the only plan without ads is considerably more expensive than Netflix’s own $8.99 price tag — it’s rather unclear if consumers will find this service of value, but anime fans just might. What do you think? Does the new Crunchyroll app sound like something you’d be interested in? Let us know on Twitter of Facebook.

Have your say!
