Activision announced today “Pitfall: The Big Adventure” for Wii is in development at Edge of Reality and will swing onto shelves this Fall. With more than 10 million Pitfall titles sold to date, Pitfall: The Big Adventure will introduce the franchise to a new generation of gamers.
Set in the Peruvian jungle, Pitfall: The Big Adventure combines action and vine swinging with puzzles. The game will feature over 60 levels spanning rainforests, caves, and glacial mountains. Within these worlds, players will explore jungles, discover lost treasures, battle shamen, escape traps and outwit creatures using accessible game mechanics developed specifically to take advantage of the Wii motion sensing controls.
“Wii is a natural and perfect fit for a Pitfall game, and it’s been fantastic to revolutionize this classic franchise through the application of the innovative Wii game mechanics. It’s a completely new experience for the gamer,” said Binu Philip, President, Edge of Reality.
“Pitfall is one of the most legendary franchises in the history of videogames, so we look forward to releasing a new version exclusively for Wii,” said Dave Oxford, Activision Publishing. “What could be more fun than using the Wii Remote to swing on a vine over blood thirsty crocodiles as retro-cool Pitfall Harry?!”
