Deadly Creatures heading to Wii for THQ

By Patrick Garratt, Thursday, 14 February 2008 11:40 GMT

A new Rainbow Studios project’s just been announced, namely Deadly Creatures for Wii. To be published by THQ in 2008, the game i s all about surviving in a “venomous world of desert terror”, apparently.

“Players will follow the entwined adventures of an armored scorpion and a stealthy 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.”

That’s Man with a capital “M”. Rainbow Studios has previously worked on some very big stuff, including Cars, so this is likely to be a big deal for THQ.
