The Hype Begins: First Fable III Footage and Screens

Fable III is officially on for Xbox 360 release this holiday season, so you know what that means. Yep, that means it’s time for the Peter Molyneux hype machine to begin, and you won’t find more hype about such simple gameplay advancements than what’s in Lionhead’s first Fable III dev diary. I mean seriously, being able to hold hands with other characters is a major innovation? ICO did it back in 2001…

But the over-hype is nothing new for the Fable franchise. The most important thing is that the game looks quite beautiful and should be decent fun like its predecessors. The dev diary is embedded up top for your viewing pleasure, and six first-look screenshots are posted after the break.
