Cam Newton will be dabbing his way onto your phone when the Panthers star releases a new mobile game later this year, featuring the quarterback and his signature dance.

ESPN reports Newton has teamed up with a Hugo Games, an app developer who has previously brought soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo into the realm of mobile gaming with “Super Stars: Ronaldo & Hugo.” The dab will be a big part of the experience according to CEO Henrik Kolle.

“That’s part of his DNA. If you do something great in the game, then you will see the animation with Cam doing some of his fun stuff.’’

Details of the game are sparse as of right now, although Kolle did say it will not be a straightforward football game, but more of a “casual game with a football flair,” according to ESPN’s report.
