PlayStation Now gets big update full of Capcom favorites and plenty more

New, 18 comments

PlayStation Now is adding more than 100 games to its collection, nearly doubling its offerings. The full list of titles joining the subscription-based streaming service is detailed on the PlayStation Blog, as well as glimpsed in the trailer above.

Capcom leads the charge, bringing the most notable additions — 21 in total. Those who shell out the monthly $19.99 fee for PS Now now have access to six Resident Evil games, including the classic Resident Evil 4 and the franchise's most recent mainline entry, Resident Evil 6.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 is also available to stream, as is Mega Man 10 and Dead Rising 2. These are just the most recent titles from these respective franchises to be joining the service; a handful of other Street Fighter and Mega Man games are also available, as well as those from Capcom's Lost Planet series.

The Capcom games are likely the update's biggest draw, but the service is also getting over 80 other titles from a variety of genres. Some other games of note include Dragon's Lair, the HD remaster of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, and Fatal Fury.

You can get the full lowdown on the PlayStation Blog, or check out PlayStation Now on your compatible Sony device.

Sony maintains that PlayStation Now will be the primary method of accessing older games on PlayStation 4. Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida told us at E3 2015 that while the on-demand service is meant to both unite PlayStation and non-PlayStation devices through games, it also works "surprisingly well" as a way to dispense last-gen titles to current-gen gamers.

There are no plans for further introducing backward compatibility to the system.
