Following an awfully obvious teaser trailer, Lionhead has announced that yes, it's jazzing up the original Fable for re-release on Xbox 360 this holiday season. Fable Anniversary, as it's called, boasts updated models and textures and lighting and 1080p support, along with more of the usual "remaster" sorts of things.

Fable Anniversary will boast improved controls, a new UI, a better save system, achievements, and speeds up loading times, the announcement explains. It also includes the extra content from the extended 'The Lost Chapters' edition, obviously.

It'll also boast SmartGlass support, lead designer Ted Timmins told Microsoft's Larry Hryb in a podcast, including taking screenshots and showing the map.

Here's the baffling and vague teaser trailer which mystified everyone this morning:

      This is awesome news! I watched my wife play through the original Fable but didn't jump into the series until Fable 2. I've wanted an excuse to tromp around in the original world. Molyneux and friends created a fun, vibrant playground that was just fun to explore.

      360 already plays the xbox Fable, which is how I played it. It's a fun action game.

      I missed out on playing the original so this works for me.

      Huh. Just picked this up for PC on an Amazon sale last week. I doubt there's any chance this remake will make it to PC, so whatever. I can already play it in 1200p, the new textures and stuff would be nice but oh well.
