Activision, Inc. has announced PITFALL: THE BIG ADVENTURE for Wii is in development at Edge of Reality and will arrive on shelves this Fall.

This is the follow up game to PITFALL: THE LOST EXPEDITION, which sold more than 10 million copies since early 2004.

Set in the Peruvian jungle, PITFALL: THE BIG ADVENTURE combines the action of reptile dodging and vine swinging with clever puzzles. The game will feature over 60 levels spanning lush rainforests, creature-filled caves, and glacial mountains. Within these dynamic worlds, players will explore cavernous jungles, discover lost treasures, battle shamen, narrowly escape treacherous traps and outwit creatures using innovative, accessible game mechanics developed specifically to take advantage of the Wii motion sensing controls.

Edge of Reality's President Binu Philip said in a statement, "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."

I probably shouldn't say this, lest I give someone an idea, but I'm surprised they haven't tried to make Pitfall into a movie. You know, kind of an Indiana Jones feel to it, with the main character swinging past danger on vines through the jungle and running across the river on alligator heads. Not that I think they should do it, I'm just surprised they haven't.

Screw this, I thought the Atari game Pitfall sucked beyond all vacuum cleaners ability to suck, not that I use a vacuum cleaner... wait a minute where getting off topic. Anywho anything related to the Pitfall game is dead to me in my book. Playstation, Wii, whatever if they make it I will boycott it, lol. Screw this and the Alligator you jumped over.

I am also surprised they have never tried making a pitfall movie. I'm sure after Indy comes out and becomes the obvious box office smash that it will we will see more movies of these type popping up on the horizon. Perhaps a new Tomb Raider will be done as well.
