At the end of July, the anime and Asian drama video streaming site Crunchyroll launched an app for PlayStation 3. While their full catalog, including simulcasts, was available at launch, one of the most requested features was missing: high-definition streaming. When the app was first announced, Crunchyroll stated 720p/1080p support would come later in 2012.
Last night, Crunchyroll at last updated their PS3 app to support 720p streams of shows if available. Previously, the maximum resolution Crunchyroll's programming could stream at was 480p. On their website, shows are able to get up to 1080p resolution, so an eventual update to allow full HD on the PS3 app is possible.
The Crunchyroll PS3 app requires a Premium membership. A 30-day free trial is being offered to PS3 app users. A Crunchyroll app for the PS Vita is in the works as well for release later this year.
"WayForward's River City Girls is an incredible beat 'em up RPG that has spawned a successful franchise and even an artbook. The first game has appeared on every modern platform other than mobile - until now. River City Girls is now available on iOS and Android through Crunchyroll Game Vault. Basically, paying Crunchyroll subscribers get free access to games in the vault, which is a great deal if you're already relying on the service to stream anime," says Co-Optimus.
Crunchyroll Game Vault is giving premium members access to anime-inspired mobile games like River City Girls and Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery.
Crunchyroll Games has offered comment on the forthcoming One Punch Man: World, stating it's 'the most ambitious' game they've worked on.
