THQ has announced that the next installment in the popular Worms turn-based strategy/party game series, Worms: A Space Oddity, is in development exclusively on the Wii for a scheduled release in spring 2008. The Worms franchise’s Wii debut will bring with it a variety of graphical, control, customization and play mode upgrades, most notably gesture-based attacks using the Wiimote and online multiplayer. Hit the jump for an early description of the game’s new features.

In Worms: A Space Oddity, players will enjoy the ultimate blend of classic Worms game modes and re-invented single-player missions, as well as multiplayer modes that include a host of all-new party games and even more customization options. The game takes advantage of the Wii’s intuitive controls, on-screen hints and the redesigned interface with an in-game help system. Worms: A Space Oddity demonstrates significant visual, technical and design advancement over its predecessors with a new visual style that abandons the traditional drawn approach and replaces it with a distinctive style inspired by classic Sci-Fi looks. The Worms battles take place across six planets, each with its own, unique environments and global events. The online multiplayer experience pits up to four Worms fiends from all over the world against each other.
