Sony has expanded its PlayStation Now streaming subscription service, adding more than 100 PlayStation 3 games to its unlimited-play lineup.

The latest PlayStation Now update features dozens of games from publisher Capcom, including multiple entries in its Resident Evil and Street Fighter franchises.

PlayStation Now is a subscription-based streaming service that allows members to experience featured PlayStation 3 games on-demand and with no purchase or download required.

Capcom’s current PlayStation Now lineup includes retail-released standouts like Dead Rising 2, Asura’s Wrath and Ultra Street Fighter 4, along with retro-inspired titles like Mega Man 9, Strider, Bionic Commando Rearmed, and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.

A significant quantity of Resident Evil games are also available for PlayStation Now streaming, including recent series entries Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. Subscribers can additionally stream a remake of the Dreamcast-era sequel Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, an upgraded version of Resident Evil 4, and the rail shooter spinoffs Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.

Other major titles premiering for PlayStation Now this week include Arc System Works’ one-on-one fighter Guilty Gear Xrd: SIGN, Koei Tecmo’s gory action game Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, acclaimed third-person shooter Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD, and several PS Vita RPGs, including Ragnarok Odyssey Ace and Atelier Rorona Plus.

Retrogaming is another major focus for PlayStation Now, with this week’s update introducing classics like Fatal Fury, The King of Fighters ’95, Dragon’s Lair, Frogger Returns, Spelunker HD, and Double Dragon Neon.

PlayStation Now subscriptions are priced at $20 per month, which grants members unlimited play of as many featured games as they wish.
