This year, Video Games Live returns to NJPAC with a new show for 2017, featuring music from Final Fantasy , Warcraft , Overwatch , Pokemon , Halo , Mass Effect , Mega Man , Kingdom Hearts , League of Legends , Uncharted , Monkey Island , Sonic the Hedgehog , The Legend of Zelda , Kingdom Hearts , Metal Gear Solid , and a whole lot more, including retro arcade games like Tetris and Asteroids . Created, produced and hosted by game industry superstar Tommy Tallarico, this stunning performance will feature a full symphony, a choir and accomplished soloists, all accompanied by state-of-the-art synchronized video and lighting effects, electronic percussion, live action, and unique interactive segments that combine for an explosive entertainment experience. The Village Voice calls it “a digital and musical sensory overload!” Ticketholders are encouraged to come early (and dressed as their favorite game characters) for a pre-show costume contest, a Guitar Hero competition, prize giveaways, and interactive game demos. This is a one-of-a-kind experience for all ages – gamers and non-gamers alike – and an ideal way to introduce new audiences to the power of symphonic music. “ Video Games Live is ingenious and fantastic!” raves The Los Angeles Times . “It’s a feast for the eyes and the ears!” says The Seattle Times .
