PS Plus Premium PS3 Games Japan
Image: Push Square

PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium are launching in Japan right now, and just like the Asian release, the complete list of games included in the service is being pulled from an official website page rather than a promotional push from Sony. While we still wouldn't use this as a definitive list of All PS Plus Games for the US and European launches in the coming weeks, the Japanese lineup does give us a taste of the sort of PS3 titles we might be able to stream.

This wasn't possible until now, since the highest tier of PS Plus in Asian territories is PS Plus Deluxe — essentially the same as Premium but without the ability to stream PS3 titles. Here's a selection of some of the most noteworthy streamable PS3 games included in the Japanese launch, although you can find more in our All PS Plus Games guide. Please note that, while some of these games have been confirmed for the US and Europe, others have not and may not make the international journey. We'll provide you with the most accurate information possible for Western territories once Sony makes it available.

With that said, here are some of the PS3 highlights:

  • AFRIKA
  • BIOHAZARD CODE: Veronica
  • Biohazard Operation Raccoon City
  • Biohazard Umbrella Corps
  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
  • God of War HD
  • God of War II HD
  • God of War III Remastered
  • MotorStorm RC Complete Edition
  • NINJA GAIDEN Σ
  • NINJA GAIDEN Σ2
  • Ratchet & Clank: FUTURE2
  • Ratchet & Clank Galaxy Squadron Q Force
  • Ratchet & Clank: INTO THE NEXUS
  • Ratchet & Crank: All for One
  • Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles
  • Resistance 3
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • The Legend of Heroes: Sky Trail FC: Kai HD EDITION
  • The Legend of Heroes: Sky Trail SC: Kai HD EDITION
  • The Legend of Heroes: Sky Trail the 3rd: Kai HD EDITION
  • Tokyo Jungle
  • White Knight Chronicles

To check out the full list of PS Plus Extra, PS Plus Premium games for the Japanese launch, click the link. There's a lot more listed, but we'll need to wait for more information from Sony to determine whether they'll also be available overseas. One thing that's worth noting as an interesting aside is that there are no new PS1 or PSP games included with PS Plus Premium in Japan. It's the same selection as in Asia.

With all that said, would you be happy with these games for the US and European releases? Let us know in the comments below.
