New Game Room Releases This Week: Pitfall! And Super BreakoutThis is just a friendly heads up for Xbox 360 owners looking for a little adventure game nostalgia this week.

Microsoft’s Major Nelson has revealed that in addition to Atari’s classic ball and stacked-block simulator Super Breakout, Microsoft will also be adding Activision’s seminal platformer Pitfall! to Xbox Live’s Game Room on Wednesday (aka tomorrow).

I was just talking with Stephen "Pitfall Harry" Johnson, and we were trying to figure out if we’d ever actually seen the ending of the original Pitfall. The consensus was we hadn’t, at which point Steve vaulted over his cubicle wall and was immediately consumed by a congregation of alligators. Yeah. It was pretty rad…I mean…sad.
