Fable Heroes is the next Lionhead offering

Yes it's another Fable tie-in that you're not interested in, or at least i'm not. The Kinect powered Fable: The Journey has already been shown off and from the videos shown that seemed like an on the rails magic shooter.
Now come another title that isn't the full RPG game that I and i'm sure many other people actually want. Instead we're to be treated to party game which reminds me alot of a mash-up between Mario Party and Castle Crashers. The premise seems to be controlling a puppet style avatar who is based on a fable character around a board game, getting further by playing mini games or brawling levels.

Here's the official description from The Xbox Live Marketplace leak:
Fable Heroes is a fresh spin on the beloved Fable franchise in which up to 4 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 Kinect for Xbox 360.
The game has only been leaked at the minute and an official launch is expected at GDC this week.
