Gaiaki has announced it has signed an agreement with Capcom to add a future selection of games to the service.

Capcom titles will join other major gaming franchises which will be available via Gaikai’s recently launched Affiliate network and in addition, Capcom titles will also be enabled to stream inside Capcom-controlled websites.

“Capcom produces some of the industry’s most unique franchises, consistently leading their genres with the highest quality,” said Robert Stevenson, SVP of interactive entertainment at Gaikai. “And as a forward thinking publisher who has had great success in the digital space, we’re excited to be working closely with them on such properties.”

Gaikai expects to have 10 million monthly users by fall.
