PAWTUCKETT, R.I., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- U.S. pop star Britney Spears has teamed up with Hasbro to create a new music-themed game called "Twister Dance," the toy and game giant said.
"Dancing has been such an important part of my life since I was a little girl," Spears, a Grammy Award-winning recording artist and mother of two young sons, said in a statement. "As soon as I saw the new Twister Dance game, I knew I wanted to be involved. I think kids will love rocking the spots and dancing to the music as much as my boys and I do. It's a lot of fun."
The game will feature a custom remix of Spears' hit song "Till the World Ends," as well as music by artists such as Ke$ha and Willow Smith. Players can connect any mp3 player to the console to dance to their own tunes, as well.
Spears also will be featured on game packaging, in a television ad and in dance-instruction videos to be released along with the game this fall.
"The game invites kids to rock the spots by placing moveable Twister spots on the floor and then following the direction of the Twister Dance console," Hasbro said in a release. "The Twister Dance console offers superior sound quality and bright, multi-color LED lights that light up to show dancers on which spots they should place their feet. Arm and hand movements are up to the dancers, allowing them to show off their individual style."
