Destructoid gets bored of light gun shooters rather quickly, but we've always had a soft spot Sega's arcade game Brave Firefighters. It used a hose peripherals that you would aim at the screen to put out blazing fires, and yes, it was ridiculous.
While we gave up on waiting for such peripherals to come to consoles, it does look like we'll be getting close with the Epicenter Studios-developed Real Heroes: Firefighter for the Wii. The game will have you waving the Wii Remote to aim your hoses, swing axes, and tear through a burning building with a chainsaw. We're sweating just thinking about it.
If this sounds like your kind of thing -- and you can keep yourself from volunteering locally -- Real Heroes: Firefighter is scheduled for a Q2 2009 release.
