For Meta and Ultimate premium subscribers, Crunchyroll has officially launched the Crunchyroll Game Vault, providing them with unlimited access to a huge variety of mobile games.
At first, the program supports the following games: Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump Dimensions, Inbento, Worldstride, River City Girls, and Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery.
Crunchyroll Game Vault, which is packed with games for fans of anime and anime inspired fun, is accessible in more than 200 countries on Android and iOS very soon. All of the games can be played without any ads or in-app purchases.
On Crunchyroll, the Fan, Mega Fan, and Ultimate Fan subscriptions are the premium options. Members of the Fan premium level, who pay $7.99 a month, are not able to access the Crunchyroll Game Vault.
Only subscribers on the Mega and Ultimate tiers are eligible for this offer. More than 24,000 hours of anime content can be viewed offline or streamed across multiple devices with the two premium tiers.
For stability, Crunchyroll will roll out some of this Game Vault's features gradually. In an effort to enhance the whole experience, it also aims to frequently add new titles.
According to Terry Li, EVP of arising business at Crunchyroll, the Crunchyroll Game Vault offers a curated selection of popular titles aimed at gamers and anime enthusiasts. Also, this effort increases the value of Crunchyroll memberships.
The service is similar to Netflix's gaming options from two years ago. All subscribers can now access Netflix's games, although the streaming behemoth is still testing its gaming plans.
By collaborating with Walmart, Crunchyroll has also made a daring step into the retail industry. For fans of anime, the collaboration will result in seamless shopping experiences.
