Conspiracy Entertainment and Epicenter Studios’ Wii firefighting game Real Heroes: Firefighter, which went gold yesterday and is scheduled for release on August 4th, is a budget game, so you probably wouldn’t expect much in terms of Hollywood production values. But as it turns out, the developers were actually able to put together a strong group of voice acting talent to bring the game’s character cast to life, which could help lend some mainstream credibility to what is a fairly unassuming game.

Jamie Kennedy and John Di Maggio headline the cast, Kennedy in the appropriate comic relief role of a brainless young firefighter, and Di Maggio (better known as the voice of Marcus Fenix from Gears of War) cast as the “no-nonsense” fire squad Captain. Other voice cast members include James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Michael Jace (The Shield), Jenette Goldstein (Aliens) and Jack McGee (Backdraft, Rescue Me). Check after the break for more details about the game’s voice cast.
