THE BUZZ: Lionhead has today revealed the official box art for Fable: The Journey, and claims that it is a title for serious gamers who don’t want to jump around the room.
“Maybe this isn’t the biggest news for all our fans out there, but it is a big moment for the development team. The box art signifies that we are working on a game now that will appear in shops all over the world and this is how you are going to spot Fable: The Journey in local retailers,” the developer said. “Needless to say we are very proud of it! If you own a Kinect – or are planning on buying one in the near future – and you are a serious gamer who doesn’t want to jump around their living room, then this is the game to look out for.”
EGM’s TAKE: Fable: The Journey is the series’ first Kinect outing and follows a young hero’s journey across Albion with his/her trusty horse. Many fans are far from happy with this seemly restrictive and watered down Fable just to get a core game released for Kinect. We can see a lot of fans simply passing this one by on the long wait for Fable IV. The major question is, in what direction will the team take the series without Peter Molyneux? We hope nothing major gets changed.
