In addition to word of seven new streaming anime shows, another piece of information struck at today’s Crunchyroll panel at Anime Expo 2013 LIKE A LIGHTNING BOLT. A Crunchyroll app for PlayStation Vita has officially been announced and is on its way!



Details regarding launch date and specs are still forthcoming, but rest assured, those of you who have been demanding Crunchyroll's ever-growing library of anime and drama on your Vita...REJOICE! RELIEF IS ON THE WAY! Stay tuned to Crunchyroll's front page for full details when they become available...

Keep in mind that the image below is NOT OFFICIAL but comes courtesy of CR user shinobicRyo who really really really wanted a CR app on his Vita to the point where he created the tribute below. We sincerely hope he is dancin’ in the street now over the news. Dreams that you dare to dream really do come true!

Haven't got a PS Vita myself, but I'm sure lots of users will benefit from this. Nice to see Crunchyroll hasn't given up on development for other devices entirely.

Thanks. I have a Vita and use it often. Having CR on it makes it an even better handheld. Hope to see a PS4 app close to launch too!

This is pretty awesome for PlayStation Vita owners. I was wondering though, are there any plans to bring a Crunchyroll app to Nintendo platforms, like the Wii U or 3DS, as they are currently the only consoles without one now?

I can see the Wii U being an amazing choice for a Crunchyroll app. The app will have its own app on Miiverse, giving fans another avenue to talk about anime and the Crunchyroll shows they've just watched. Also, SpotPass could be used to let fans know about new licenses. The GamePad could also be used to stream both on the GamePad screen and the TV at once, allowing you to watch on the big TV, but seamlessly move to the smaller screen if the TV is needed for other reasons. Or maybe you could stream anime on the TV screen and have series/episode description, thumbnails to other episodes and/or user comments on the GamePad screen?

With the 3DS, while it isn't HD like a lot of the other apps, does have the portability, yet nicely sized screen that the Vita has (well, with the XL model). It also has SpotPass and will later on, have Miiverse.. America has a Netflix app on the 3DS, so a streaming app is possible.


Doesn't that look pretty?

Given there hasn't been a CR app on any Nintendo device, one has to consider the fault may lie more with Nintendo. Does the WiiU have any video services on it beyond the "big boys" (e.g., Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon)?

That said, getting it on the Vita will get it into more hands when your consider:

Vita: 4.5 million sold as of early April, 2013:

WiiU: 3.45 million sold as of the end of March 2013:
