THQ has announced a new Wii exclusive property with Deadly Creatures, an action thriller due for release this year by internal developer Rainbow Studios (MX vs ATV), which puts players in control of a scorpion and a tarantula in "a venomous world of desert terror, where the greatest victory is survival."

The publisher says players follow the adventures of a scorpion and a tarantula as they "struggle against a variety of creatures including vicious Gila monsters, tarantula wasps, black widows, and the most dangerous predator of all Man."

THQ also promises "intuitive motion controls" which take advantage of the Wii remote allowing players to "fully experience every pounce and tail sting," and a "deep combo-based combat system" the plays out in a mix of action and suspenseful exploration.

Said Rainbow executive producer and general manager Nick Wlodyka, "Deadly Creatures is a creepy, cinematic thrill ride, where the distinction between predator and prey can shift around every corner. With brutal motion-controlled combat, a dark, compelling story and some of the best visuals to date on the Wii, we are excited to bring Deadly Creatures to a large core Wii audience that hungers for a new experience.
