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.”
