Twister first made its debut in 1966 and Hasbro is giving us a modern, new way to play this classic game 57 years later!

Twister Air ditches the floor mat and adds a tech element to the game with augmented reality. Players can download the Twister Air app using their own smart device, then reach, clap, swipe, and strike poses to music beats. Each set comes with eight colorful, stretchy, one-size-fits-most Twister Air bands for ankle and wrist movement detection, and an adjustable stand that holds any smartphone or tablet with a width of up to 9 inches.

When the music starts playing, players can try to match their wrist and ankle bands to the colored spots they see on the screen to earn points. This will encourage kids to move around and get active, just like the original game. Kids can play in VS, Teams, or Solo mode to either compete against friends, play in teams in a shared screen face-off, or play on their own to try to beat their personal best. The app features high score leaderboards, how-to-play tutorials, the ability to capture content, and a library with more than 16 songs that kids can play the game to.

Hasbro also released a new, original song, “Twist in the Air” to celebrate the game launch. The song will be available to play in the game and kids can also listen to it on TikTok and major streaming platforms, including Apple Music and Spotify.

Recommended for kids ages 8 and up, Twister Air will be available on Amazon on June 1 and at most major retailers on Aug. 1. You can preorder it on Amazon now for $19.99.
