We’ve been writing, every so often, about the upcoming Nintendo Wii game: Real Heroes: Firefighter. It’s a game that excites me, in particular, because when I was a kid I wanted to be a fireman when I grew up. My life went in a different direction, but I always thought the uniform was cool, and I always wanted a Dalmation for a pet. Due to release in August for a mere $29.99, we have some pretty spectacular news about the game: It’ll have celebrity voices in it.
Real Heroes: Firefighter is a first-person action game that is exclusive to the Nintendo Wii. It is being developed by Epicenter Studios and published by Conspiracy Entertainment. The game is made to be a realistic firefighting game that puts you into the career of a firefighter, answering calls to save lives.
It features voices from stars such as Michael Jace from the hit TV series, The Shield, as well as Buffy and Angel star: James Marsters. Other familiar voices include comedian Jamie Kennedy, as well as Jenette Goldstein from the film Aliens, character actor Jack McGee and Gears of War’s voice actor John Di Maggio.
Part of the proceeds will be used for supporting real life firefighters.
I’m betting that if this one does well, we might see other games in the same vein, such as Real Heroes: Police Officer and Real Heroes: Paramedic. I can dream, right?
