Streaming giant Crunchyroll has upped its game for Mega Fan and Ultimate Fan members, as the company announced on Nov 8, 2023, that they have launched a new feature called ‘Crunchyroll Game Vault‘. It features premium mobile games tailored for fans of ‘anime and anime-inspired entertainment’.
As a part of the initiative they have partnered with various developers and publishers.
Crunchyroll Game Vault will be exclusively available to Mega and Ultimate fan members in more than 200 countries and territories, including India.
Moreover, Fans can now download Crunchyroll Game Vault’s five launch titles on Android.
Among these titles are tactical action game Captain Velvet: The Jump+ Dimensions, beat-em-up action game River City Girls, and single-player RPG Wolfstride, indie visual novel Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery, and food-themed puzzle title inbento.
The iOS version is set to launch soon.
Terry Li, Executive Vice President of Emerging Business at Crunchyroll, expressed his enthusiasm about Crunchyroll Game Vault, stating, “Crunchyroll Game Vault is a curated, focused library of premium titles for the global anime fan that loves gaming, adding even more value to Crunchyroll memberships by connecting fans with anime-infused content. With Crunchyroll Game Vault, we’re also looking forward to working with international developers to bring their titles to mobile for the first time or introduce existing mobile games to the Crunchyroll community as part of an amazing line-up“.
Adam Tierney of WayForward, the director of “River City Girls,” also shared his excitement about this collaboration, saying “The anime-style visuals, manga-like cutscenes, and catchy synthpop music all should feel right at home for Crunchyroll premium members. We hope the Crunchyroll fans enjoy visiting the interesting locations of River City (and beating the snot out of a few dozen baddies while you’re here)“.
Crunchyroll Game Vault’s premium games complement the growing library of titles published by Crunchyroll Games, the interactive division of Crunchyroll dedicated to free-to-download anime game experiences, including Street Fighter: Duel, My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero, and the upcoming One Punch Man: World.
