Pearl Jam documentary gets 8-bit video game

The Home Run Hitting Contest is available online

Following the release of the long-awaited documentary Let’s Play Two that immortalized Pearl Jam’s sold-out August 2016 shows from Wrigley Field comes the Let’s Play Two Baseball Game named “Home Run Hitting Contest.” Designed as an 8-bit game inspired by the iconic performances at Wrigley Field, the game features all the band members as baseball players. Fans can play the game via the group’s website.

Let’s Play Two, directed by Danny Clinch, is available on Blu-ray, DVD, CD and double LP. The concert film shows the special connection of fontman Eddie Vedder and his hometown of Chi-town. Track listings span the group’s 25 years featuring songs from Ten to Lightning Bolt. Songs include “Better Man,” “Jeremy,” “Go,” “Alive” and more.

“The first time you walk into Wrigley Field, it’s like stepping into Oz,” Vedder says of his hometown fandom.

The CD is presented in a Casemade pizzoli book with 32 page booklet featuring photos and director’s note from Clinch. The double vinyl is presented in a tip-on style gatefold jacket with soft touch gloss varnish finish featuring photos and director’s note from Danny Clinch.

Let’s Play Two was produced by FOX Sports Originals, Monkeywrench Productions, Tourgigs Productions, Universal Music Publishing Group, Republic Records and Major League Baseball in collaboration with Milkt Films and Polygram Entertainment.
