Introduction

Fable Heroes, set for release on Xbox Live Arcade on May 2nd, is a Gauntlet/Castle Crashers style title meant to give fans a chance to delve into a quirky imagining of Peter Molyneux's Fable universe before the release of the Kinect-heavy Fable: The Journey later this year. For 800 Microsoft Points, up to 4 players can simultaneously romp through various stages and dungeons from the first three Fable titles, as well as some new (but similarly styled) areas, fighting troops of monsters and bosses, as well as navigating the game's 2.5D levels. Akin to the release of Fable: Pub Games on XBLA prior to 2008's Fable II, Fable Heroes gives players the chance to build up their starting gold and unlock in-game items for Fable: The Journey.
