Firefly Online for iPhone and iPad snags TV show's cast to handle voice roles

firefly online

Firefly Online, the upcoming game based on the cult hit sci-fi TV show that was announced a year ago for the iPhone, iPad and other platforms, will be made with the help of the cast of the original series, who will handle the voice over roles of their characters.

The announcement was made at a panel on Thursday night for the game at the San Diego Comic-Con. Firefly Online, which will be an online action-role playing game, will also be released for Android, Windows and Mac, but there's no word yet on a specific launch date. The game's official website is currently having some issues loading, most likely due to all of the show's Browncoat fans checking it out for the first time.

Developer Spark Plug Games also released the first trailer for Firefly Online Thursday that shows actual in-game footage, which, quite frankly, doesn't look all that impressive. However, since the game hasn't been released yet we will give its current graphical looks a pass at this point. The video also shows some Browncoats offering their thoughts on what kind of space ship captain they would be, including one at the end of the video that most people might recognize.

What do you think of Firefly Online now that the cast of the show will lend their voices to the game?
