Microsoft Announces Fable The Journey For Kinect

During the Microsoft press conference at E3, Peter Molyneux got on stage to announce a new Fable game for Kinect, Fable The Journey . 

After a brief trailer, someone stepped onstage to demo the game. The sequence was brief, but during the demo we watched the player grab the reigns of a chariot and race up the side of the mountain, only to get hijacked by a bunch of goblin creatures. At this point, the demo shifted to combat. Using a variety of gestures, the player was able to caste several elemental spells. Near the end of the demo, the player even twirled his hands around to conjure an energy spear.

We don’t know much else about Fable The Journey right now, but we’ll hopefully get to check it out later in the week, so we’ll keep you posted.
