Pitfall 3D: Beyond the Jungle (Pitfall 3D in Japan and Pitfall: Beyond the Jungle in Europe) is a video game released in 1998 for the PlayStation by Activision and in 1999 for the Game Boy Color by Crave Entertainment. The European and American Game Boy Color versions do not have the "3D" moniker in the title and in Japan it is simply known as Pitfall GB

In this adventure, Harry meets a girl named Mira who enlists his aid in freeing her people from "The Scourge", an evil force bent on controlling her world.

One of the most distinctive features of this game is the voice of Bruce Campbell as Pitfall Harry Jr and Catherine Sutherland as Mira.

Just as in its predecessor Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, the original Pitfall! for the Atari 2600 is available as an Easter Egg.
