Funimation now saying Switch app hasn’t been “officially announced”
Yesterday, some interesting Switch-related news came out of a C2E2 panel. Folks attending the event heard that a FunimationNow app was in the works for Nintendo’s console.
Oddly, Funimation is now saying that the company hasn’t made “an official announcement.” We have the following tweet sent out a short while ago:
Fans, you may hear news announcing our FunimationNow streaming app on Nintendo Switch. To clarify, we haven’t made an official announcement. When there's anything official to announce, you’ll hear it from us first. Thanks for your enthusiasm as we work to get on the platform.

Obviously something was said at that panel to give attendees the impression that something is happening with Switch. Perhaps Funimation just doesn’t want to acknowledge it on the record at this time. In any case, we’ll keep track of the situation going forward.
