Sony’s cloud service adds three more games to its lineup.
Xbox Game Pass keeps winning plaudits left, right, and centre, and rightly so, but PlayStation Now has been doing similar things for a while as well, and though it doesn’t make similar waves, it has been growing at an impressive rate. Sony’s cloud subscription service is going to expand its catalogue of games once again soon, and it’s been confirmed that new games will be added to that lineup in May.
Starting right now, PS Now is going to offer Team Ninja’s Souslike action RPG Nioh, Bandai Namco’s manga crossover fighter Jump Force, and Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games’ acclaimed brawler revival Streets of Rage 4. Jump Force will be available until August 2, while Streets of Rage 4 will leave the service on November 1.
Those are three solid additions to the PS Now library. Jump Force is a bit inconsistent, but an enjoyable enough game for fans of the many properties represented in it. Streets of Rage 4 is legitimately great, combining nostalgia and modernization perfectly. Finally, there’s Nioh, an excellent and challenging RPG that needs to introduction. Pretty good deal for PS Now subscribers all in all.
