Three new games are headed to Sony’s PSNow May update, including Team Ninja’s awesome action RPG Nioh.
Subscribers to Sony’s online Streaming Service might be glad to hear that the May update to the online streaming platform looks a might better than the PSPlus counterpart. While PS Plus subscribers can aim for Battlefield V, PSNow layers can head even further back in time to an era where ghosts and monsters roamed the ravaged landscape. Taking control of t an Irish sailor in a fictionalized version of the year 1600, players must wade through gorgeous landscapes and defeat the yokai that would consume all before them. This is no easy task, and as players falter, each resurrection will bring them a strengthened resolve to overcome their foes. Or maybe the vast array of swords, axes, spears and even war hammers might do the trick? After launching on console back in 2017, the PC version was also worth the wait. Now PSNow players can try out Nioh, alongside two new titles.
Joining Nioh is another Japanese title with a very different take on fighting monsters. Mixing the world of Shōnen Jump with our own reality, Jump Force brings anime showstoppers into the action on PSNow. Available from today until 2 August, Jump Force is something of a celebration of Shonen Jump, the serialised manga publication and a cornerstone of otaku culture. Pushing the stars of thee adventures into a fully realised 3D world, Jump Force allows players to take control of a custom-built avatar and fight for the future of humanity alongside characters from Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Hunter X Hunter, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu Yu Hakusho, Saint Seiya and many others. Alternatively, you can finally settle that schoolyard argument and find out who could beat Goku.
Streets of Rage 4
The final entry into the PSNow library this month is the delightfully modern throwback, Streets of Rage 4. The retro side-scrolling beat-em-up is back and punching forward for a new generation of players. The latest in this iconic franchise only dropped across PC and console during 2020 and blew us away during our review, as well as selling over a million copies and reuniting Axel and Blaze with newcomers Cherry Hunter and Floyd Iraia. As you head from left to right remember to break everything and clean up the mean streets. It’s a simple idea but one that has endured long enough for PSNow subscribers to try out until 1 November 2021.
