Legend speaks of an epic dance-off between the pirouetting, wine-loving elves and the break-dancing, beer-chugging dwarves. As it turns out, it was all to promote a new Hobbit iOS game.

The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth takes users back to the world of J.R.R. Tolkien as elves and dwarves fight for dominance. This feud plays out in a new promo video for the game featuring Sean Astin of The Lord of the Rings films as an emcee of a dance battle.

“You want to settle it right once and for all?” he asks both sides. “Dance battle!” Who wins? It’s difficult to say because a back-flipping orc crashes the party.

Kingdoms of Middle-earth can be downloaded through Apple’s App Store or Google Play.
