Experience the global multimedia award-winning concert spectacular on Blu-ray this October!

Shout! Factory will be bringing the documentary 'Video Games Live: Level 2' to Blu-ray on October 19.

Filmed in New Orleans this past April in high definition with 5.1 audio surround sound, the concert features the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, a 34-person chorus; a number of soloists including pianist Martin Leung, flautist Laura “Flute Link” Intravia, original vocalists from the games; plus a rock band featuring Tallarico on guitar; and a full complement of state-of-the-art lighting, lasers and special effects.

"We are so excited to be releasing our second album and first DVD/Blu-Ray. People have been asking us for years when these products will be available and we didn’t want to put anything out until we had everything we wanted,” said veteran video game composer and Video Games Live CEO/executive producer and host Tommy Tallarico. “Aside from all the cool bonus material, what’s really special for me and this project is that some of the music that appears has either never been released before or has only been available in Japan. I think that gamers around the world are really going to be excited about the setlist and what we’ve put together for the first time in gaming history. That being said, our goal has always been to create a show for everyone -- whether they play games or not. The fact that all of the game publishers have come on board with this project to help our mission says a lot about the future of gaming and how much they believe in Video Games Live.”

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the release will be a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and supplements will include: creator commentary, interviews, behind the scenes, and trailers, teasers, & game making.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
