Fable: The Journey ‘Will Be For Serious Gamers’

Lionhead have said that their upcoming Kinect game, Fable: The Journey won’t make you ‘jumping around your living room looking daft like many other Kinect games’.

Via their official website, Lionhead said the following:

“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.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.”

They also released the Box Art for the game once it is released on the Xbox 360 on September 4th and can be seen below. Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.

    I’ve been playing the Fable series from release day of the first Fable game on the original Xbox and grated some of the games were better than others but now I can see myself being disappointed. I will always be a fan of the Fable series, but this one is not for me.

    I know Lionhead wanted to take this game in a different direction, and I say good luck to them.

    kinect only!!! are they joking they just lost thousands of potental buyers. why couldnt they just of intergrated the kinenct into the gameplay but still able to use controllers too. it really sucks that they decided to take the game in this direction. i am not planing wasting money on a stupid kinect title. i hope in the futre they make the right choice and go back to being able to use the controller. if they dont they can consider one less fan and loyal gamer.

  • Brooke A.

    Really? After having a crap ton of loyal fans awaiting the next installment of fable, they make it for Kinect? Bad move.

  • Alva R.

    bull shit!!! fuckin kinect kills everything!!!!

    What a sad sad move for Lionhead… I really expected more from them especially for such an amazing game like Fable, sadly you lost another customer here. I wont be forced in to buying an extra accessory because Microsoft threw you some kickbacks to make it for Kinect only. I just never got in to Kinect and prefer my role playing games on traditional controllers. Better luck next time.

    This game actually looked somewhat decent but why make it for the kinect? I am sorry but this is royally stupid because now many Fable fans will be reduced to hoping they come out with something else.
