Hey everyone! It's been crazy year here at Crunchyroll, but we're not quite done yet!

We know that a lot of people have been asking, and just in time for the holidays, we present the Crunchyroll app for WiiU! (How many of you guys noticed the updated image on the devices page? ;))


The app can now be downloaded in the Americas, with worldwide availability, as supported by the Nintendo eShop, coming early 2015. The app will be localized in all of the languages that Crunchyroll currently supports! (If you don't see the app in your eShop, it may not be available in your area yet, but please let us know.) Premium users can access the app right away! If you aren't a Premium Member yet, there are sample clips available for you to enjoy, or you can sign up for a free trial and experience all the Crunchyroll app on WiiU has to offer!


Check out some more screenshots below! (*Please note that content availability varies by region.)





We hope everyone has a wonderful and anime-filled holiday season, and get ready for Winter 2015, coming soon!

I just got a Wii U for the holidays, and now I have more ways to watch CR stuff than ever. They just keep getting more awesome with all of their hard work for all of us.

Yeah! I've been waiting for this.

...

Still waiting for Crunchyroll console apps outside America though, since it tracks our location to restrict what we can watch and offers a series of languages perhaps all of them from the standard browser service as I understand it. We've been kept waiting a long time.

It is especially poor as only North American Wii U's will be able to access it to get the foreign limited sample of shows. I hope we can expect more regions aside from more platforms.

The news article is tad confusing, are you saying Crunchyroll will be available in European E-shops for download or will we only be able to download it from the American E-shop but use it in every country?

Since the Wii U is region locked, the second option would be very much pointless for any non-American members unless they have an American Wii U laying around.

I'm from the Netherlands and the app is nowhere to be seen in the E-shop.

Well at lest the 360 is no longer the only gaming system not to be open to free users. By the way. Why are these two systems different from the others? Why is it open to free users on the other game systems but not the WiiU or 360?
