THQ announces that Dancing with the Stars, based on the ABC television show of the same name, is now available for Windows PC, online download and mobile phones. Published by THQ's ValuSoft division, the new Dancing with the Stars video game puts players in the role of their favorite celebrity as they test their skills while performing some of the most popular dances featured on the show.

In Dancing with the Stars for Windows PC, gamers will put on the dancing shoes of some of their favorite celebrity contestants from previous seasons of the television series.

Using power modes, dancers can mesmerize the judges, thrill the crowd and boost their ability to perform a certain move. Armed with the Dancing with the Stars' wardrobe, virtual dancers can don a show-stopping costume for every dance. Three mini-games allow players to help increase their celebrity's rhythm, posture and showmanship in their effort to receive a perfect score. Fans of Dancing with the Stars can also learn the secrets to perfect dance steps while watching a full-motion video of two of the show's star dancers Karina Smirnoff and Jonathan Roberts.

Dancing with the Stars for mobile phones lets wireless gamers choose their celebrity and costume while training their way through five exciting mini-games.
