Microsoft’s Arcade Next promotion continues with the release of Fable Heroes.
Priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10), the cartoony action RPG seems like a natural extension of the series and players who collect a massive amount of loot in the game will be able to use it to purchase upgrades in Fable: The Journey, this Fall’s next Fable spinoff:
Fable Heroes is a fresh spin on the beloved Fable franchise in which up to four players play both cooperatively and competitively in this hack-and-slash adventure. Work together as heroes of Albion to defeat familiar foes and new enemies while collecting as many gold coins as possible to unlock upgrades, characters, and items in both this game and Fable: The Journey for Xbox 360.
Also available today is Romino’s Awesomenauts, an online arena fighter that can be downloaded for 800 Microsoft Points ($10):
It’s the year 3587; conflict spans the stars. Huge robot armies are locked in an enduring stalemate. In their bid for galactic conquest they call upon the most powerful group of mercenaries in the universe: the Awesomenauts! Play as one of several Awesomenauts and storm the online arenas alone or with friends. Each Awesomenaut can be upgraded with their own unique items to suit different strategies.
