Although Sony updated its download library with several new titles six days ago, some might believe the online service still lacks enough titles to support the imminent October 1 launch of its UMD-less portable, the PSP Go. However, Capcom today announced it will help Sony augment its library selection with a slate of 10 titles confirmed for re-release on the PlayStation Network.

Fun fact: Captain Commando actually got his start in an excessively brutal black ops division of the fashion police. Pink is a fashion no-no.

The influx of Capcom titles begins tomorrow with the release of Capcom Classics Collection Remixed a compilation featuring Bionic Commando, 1941: Counter Attack, Magic Sword, Strider, and more than a dozen other titles. Capcom's other arcade archival bundle, Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded will follow at an undetermined date with a lineup, including Street Fighter II, King of Dragons, and Knights of the Round. Five other PSP games will also soon be joining the ranks of the downloadable, including Mega Man iterations Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X, as well as Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max.
