Firefly Online, the upcoming strategic roleplaying game based on the cult-hit Joss Whedon TV series just scored itself a whole lot more credibility as it was announced at the recent San Diego Comic-con event that the actors from the show would be reprising their roles:
Yep, It's true. The Big Damn Heroes have joined Firefly Online!
Nathan, Alan, Adam, Sean and Ron have already recorded their parts, and Morena, Jewel and Summer are on the schedule and will be in studio soon. And we're currently working with Gina to find a time for her to record.
There's an epic new story they'll be helping tell (and when we say "epic", we mean "EPIC") and sidequests where you might just run into a familiar face.
In addition to the BDHs, Michael Fairman has joined the cast to reprise his role as Niska. We've already recorded Michael and his performance was nothing short of bone-chilling. Look forward to taking some jobs from Niska, if you dare!
Given that the game is in development by a studio only known for a handful of casual mobile games, we'd find this news hard to believe if Mal Reynolds himself, Nathan Fillion, hadn't made an appearance at the end of the first "gameplay" trailer. See for yourself below.
The announcement also suggests that the targeted release window for Firefly Online has been pushed back to Spring 2015 (Southern Hemisphere Autumn 2015).
