One of the best deals in the game just added something for anime fans. From now on, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate includes a 75 day free trial for Crunchyroll. The promotion comes with access to the Mega Fan level of the platform, which allows you to watch Crunchyroll’s entire library of over 1,000 anime titles ad-free. It also includes offline viewing and the ability to stream content to four devices simultaneously.
Game Pass Ultimate subscribers have until February 8, 2022 to take advantage of the promotion through the Game Pass Perks gallery. The offer is only available to new Crunchyroll customers. Plus, it’s set to renew automatically, so keep that in mind if you want to avoid a surprise on your credit card.
Crunchyroll is a particularly interesting addition for Game Pass Ultimate considering that Sony recently spent $ 1.175 billion to purchase the service from AT&T. The fact that it competes with Microsoft in the console market seems secondary to Sony here in relation to the potential to attract new customers to the service. In less than a year before the Crunchyroll deal closed, the platform has added around 2 million subscribers, a trend Sony is likely hoping to continue.
