PlayStation Now May update adds Streets of Rage 4 and Nioh

Sony has announced the three games that are going to be added to PlayStation Now for May, and those three games are Streets of Rage 4, Nioh, and Jump Force. All three games will be available from May 4th. It appears that Nioh will be on Sony’s streaming service indefinitely while Jump Force and Streets of Rage 4 have limited times. Jump Force will be removed after August 2nd, while Streets of Rage 4 will be removed after November 1st.


Recently, DotEmu announced the Mr X Nightmare DLC for Streets of Rage 4, with Max Thunder being confirmed as a playable character last week. In our review for Streets of Rage 4, I wrote:

Streets of Rage 4 is a must for any beat ‘em up fans, especially those with fond memories of the original trilogy. The fighting is great, the visuals are great, and the soundtrack is great. Lizardcube and Guard Crush have managed to capture the essence of those classic games and upgrade it for the modern age.

Do not dismiss Nioh as just another knockoff; it’s so much more than that. By taking some inspiration from others, Team Ninja do prove with a rich combat system and solid foundation that they have the ability to surprise and innovate. The vast majority of the game is a pleasure to play, despite the fact that death is around every corner.  There’s a lot I’ve not even touched upon in this review, simply because it’s better experienced than told. For Koei Tecmo at least, all the effort was well worth it.

In our Jump Force review, Miguel wrote:

Crossover games are nothing new to Bandai Namco or Shonen Jump, so it surprises and disappoints me to see that none of the good aspects or successful mechanics of these previous games made their way into Jump Force at all. Jump Force is a visual mess, It lacks the fun and charm that a wild crossover like this should embrace, and It’s just a technical mess from top to bottom. Jump Force is a huge celebration of some of the most iconic manga in history, but it fails to do any of them justice.
