Burnout Paradise Remastered To Feature English B’z Song “FRICTION”
Racing video game Burnout Paradise by Electronic Arts will soon be re-released in remastered form for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The original version of the game, released ten years ago in January 2008, featured a celebrated soundtrack that included “Paradise City” by Guns N’ Roses as its opening theme. Portions of the soundtrack for the original release were sourced from an earlier game in the series titled Burnout Dominator for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable in March 2007. Both games and the latest version feature an original English song by B’z entitled “FRICTION” which was written specifically for the 2007 edition.
Notably, “FRICTION” became one of the relatively few B’z songs available on international iTunes store fronts though it has since been delisted. It was also later utilized as a second B-side for the fall 2007 single “SUPER LOVE SONG“. A revised version would be featured on the 2007 album ACTION.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will be available worldwide March 16, 2018 for $39.99.
