Square Enix and Sony BMG have announced "mobile dance game" Destiny's Child Groove due later this winter, featuring images of vocalists Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as well as versions of the popular group's songs.

Four songs from the group's album "#1s," including "Survivor," "Bug A Boo," "Say My Name" and "Lose My Breath," will be used in the game, which takes the form of a back-and-forth dance battle in which users compete against A.I. characters.

Mobile games are an increasingly common medium for pop culture icons to explore, with recent titles tied to Paris Hilton, Desperate Housewives, and The O.C.

"The beautiful thing about this project is that the main people involved in creating it are youthful. The same goes for the artists, many of their fans, as well as our target gamers," said Shuhei Yamaguchi, Mobile Producer for Square Enix, Inc. "It's a game for the young, created by the young. I'm confident, this landmark project that expands the casual genre of mobile games, will be a hit."
