Lionhead’s ‘cute outside of Fable III experience’ appears to have been revealed; an advertisement discovered in UK’s Xbox World magazine is pushing a companion game for the upcoming RPG, noting it’s in the works for “smartphones.”
Earlier in the year, creative man Peter Molyneux teased “a really cute, very very cute ‘outside of Fable III‘” project. This is it, then.
The game’s titled Fable III: Kingmaker and, like Fable II‘s Pub Games, allows players to earn some coin that can then be transferred to Fable III. The virtual dough can be earned by placing virtual flags all over the UK. “For every flag you plant, and every power up you claim,” the ad reads, “you shall earn gold coins, which you shall then be able to transfer into the Fable III game on your Xbox 360!”
Whether something similar will be available outside UK is unclear, though the game’s teaser site does offer several regional options.
No concrete dates yet but, according to the teaser site, “The battle begins this October,” suggesting it may become available as soon as this Friday.
