Fable Anniversary coming to Xbox 360 this year

Microsoft and Lionhead have announced that Fable Anniversary, a HD re-release of the original Fable, will be coming to the Xbox 360 later this year.

Fable Anniversary will offer up all of the content of Fable: The Lost Chapters and boasts improvements such as 1080p high definition visuals, improved lighting, upgraded textures, models and animations, a new save system, “non-existent” loading, achievement support, leaderboards for the chicken kicking mini-game and Smartglass integration. Apparently Lionhead is also investigating post-release content for the game.

Fable Anniversary will be out in time for Christmas.
