Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Also to Include 2 Months of Funimation Premium Plus
The best deal in gaming just keeps getting better.
In a tweet this morning, the official Twitter account for Xbox Game Pass posted a photo revealing one of the latest perks for Game Pass Ultimate: two months of free Funimation Premium Plus. Funimation is an anime streaming service that seems like a perfect pair for Game Pass Ultimate. There is a high crossover between anime fans and gamers so this deal is perfect for consumers while also being just one more thing to add to the incredible service that Game Pass Ultimate provides.

Offering a great selection of shows like My Hero Academia, Dragon Ball Z Super, and Death Parade, the Funimation streaming service is something of a Game Pass Ultimate itself, but for anime.
This addition to Game Pass is just one of several that makes the deal even sweeter. Just last month, Microsoft announced that EA Play will also be added to the service this holiday season with no extra cost.

Microsoft’s gamer/consumer-friendly model has been giving it a name ever since Game Pass was announced back in 2017. Heading into this new generation of consoles, however, it’s certainly leaning on that aspect of its marketing to really sell the Xbox Series X/S. Their approach of putting gamers first by offering big AAA first-party games for free on the service the day they launch is huge for fans who are deciding which of the next-gen consoles they want to buy.
In 2020, Game Pass Ultimate has gone from something described as “the Netflix for gaming” to undeniably the best deal that gaming has to offer. With the constant addition of huge titles like Doom: Eternal and Resident Evil 7, Game Pass seems like it can do no wrong, and adding Funimation to the mix is just another step in the right direction.
