Further information regarding B’z upcoming 20th studio album DINOSAUR has been unveiled. The track “King Of The Street” off the new album will serve as the theme song to the Japanese release of upcoming hack and slash game Dynasty Warriors 9 as it is titled in the west (the game is to be published as Shin Sangokumusou 8 [真・三國無双8] in Japan). The games use the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history as a basis that continue to be romanticized in countless television dramas, movies, and video games.

The last time B’z provided a theme song to a video game was 2012’s “Into Free -Dangan-” which served as the theme to Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma. The song, featured in the trailer below leading up to the game’s release, is currently the only B’z song available for purchase on international storefronts and can be purchased for the local equivalent of $0.69 on iTunes worldwide.
