Nintendo fans are waiting patiently to get themselves a CrunchyRoll app on Nintendo Switch, and if the myriad conversations on message boards around the internet are anything to go by, they're getting fairly impatient.
Everyone's favourite anime streaming service has dedicated apps in-built into smart TVs, as well as dedicated apps on PS4 and Xbox One.
It makes sense – after all, gamers love anime. It makes a lot of sense to have the app on consoles.
With that in mind, where is the CrunchyRoll Switch app? Probably in the same place Nintendo is hiding its Switch Netflix , Switch Spotify and Switch Discord apps… nobody knows.
Anime fans all over the internet are keen to see the app land on Nintendo Switch, though.
Even on CrunchyRoll's own forums , user Falon2 calls other members to action – asking them to make noise about seeing the app release on the hybrid console/handheld.
"I would love to see feedback or information that Crunchyroll as a company is taking this seriously and if they to are interested in seeing the Crunchyroll app on the Nintendo Switch," says Falon2.
Heading over to CrunchyRoll's main site isn't encouraging, either.
If you head over to the CrunchyRoll ' Devices ' list on the site, the company still has the Wii U front and center, asking users to check out the 'new' Wii U app.
Considering that console has been more or less dead and buried for a number of years, that doesn't make us think a Switch version will be arriving any time soon.
To make matters worse, the only semi-official information we can find about the app comes from a supposed former developer that used to work on the console integration apps.
On a reddit thread, this developer talks about how plans on console apps were suspended when a new company took over CrunchyRoll.
We have no way of validating this information, but it could perhaps be an insight into why the feature rollout for the service has been… sluggish.
We'll update you with more information as we get it.
