Lionhead announces Fable Anniversary for Xbox 360
After a series with a record of disappointment thanks to Peter Molyneux, the Fable series is reminding what used to be its fan base where it all began.
This remake, coinciding with Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker remake, will also feature HD visuals, along with other visual enhancements. They’re also promising reduced loading times, which, after having played and enjoyed the first game, is something I can get behind.
As an aside, we already saw Nintendo abuse the nostalgia factor with Super Mario Brothers, Donkey Kong Country, and even the Kirby franchise. Let’s hope the HD remake trend doesn’t catch on as another way for the game industry to line its pockets without really trying. Although I am looking forward to Wind Waker and even Fable Anniversary.
