New York, NY - June 12, 2013 - "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" will host its fourth annual video game week featuring a mashup of the latest games alongside special musical performances and comedy sketches for a week of tech-filled fun June 17 -21 (12:35am ET on NBC).

The week will include the following demo line-up: Monday, June 17 - "Forza Motorsport 5" on Microsoft's Xbox One, Tuesday, June 18 - "Knack" on Sony PlayStation 4, Wednesday, June 19 - Ubisoft's "Watch Dogs," Thursday, June 20 - Activision's "Call of Duty: Ghosts" and Friday, June 21 - "Game & Wario" and "Super Mario 3D World" on Nintendo Wii U.

Additionally, "Late Night" has scheduled a variety of musical guests to appear during the week with ties to the video gaming world. On Monday, Anamanaguchi will be taking the stage for their first live in-studio performance on American TV. The band is well-known for being at the forefront of the musical genre "chiptune," which is often performed on and pays homage to sound chips from vintage video game consoles. Fallon will welcome Chvrches on Wednesday night to perform the single "Mother We Share" from their upcoming fall debut album. The group will have several songs in video games this year, including FIFA '14. Lastly, Zedd and special guest Foxes will have a video game themed set on Friday performing "Clarity" with The Roots, which will transition into Zedd's famed remix of "The Legend of Zelda" theme song.

There is another exciting component of the week -- "Late Night" wants to connect directly with the fans at home. Fallon is asking fans to submit a video of themselves and their moms going head-to-head in a gaming session. The videos can be uploaded to YouTube with the title "Gaming With My Mom" and "Late Night" will select the best moments to premiere on the show the week of June 17. For more information on submitting a video, please visit www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/gamingwithmymom.

The week will also include special video game themed comedy bits.
