Activision has announced that a new iteration of its classic Pifall franchise will be released on Wii in the autumn.
Pitfall: The Big Adventure is in development at Activision studio 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 of 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?”
Set in the Peruvian jungle, Pitfall: The Big Adventure will feature over 60 levels spanning rainforests, caves and glacial mountains.
The title’s game mechanics have been developed specifically to take advantage of the Wii’s 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 Edge of Reality president Binu Philip.
