Murmurs stemming from a quickly edited Gamasutra article are spreading across the internet like wild fire, carrying news of a new Fable game planned for release on Xbox Live Arcade titled Fable: Heroes. While we don’t currently have any information on the game, speculation is building that it could be the previously announced Kinect enabled iteration of the franchise known as Fable: The Journey simply going by another name. Alternatively, it could also be something completely new. Either way, we’re fairly certain you’ll be hearing about a new XBLA bound Fable in the very near future.
Fable is an Action-RPG series developed by Lionhead Studios and published by Microsoft which made its debut on the original Xbox. The franchise is built around the concept of empowering players to make decisions, and then witnessing the consequences of those decisions as your character and the world around you evolve. Mix in a whole lot of hack and slash combat, magic, a charming cast and universe, as well as British humor and you’ve got the basic formula for Fable. The most recent entry in the series, Fable 3 is available now for Xbox 360.
