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."
