Android 21 Confirmed As Playable Fighter For Dragon Ball FighterZ

Game informer - Wed, 01/17/2018 - 10:26

Android 21, the only original character in Dragon Ball FighterZ, has been confirmed as a playable fighter for the game.

The news comes the latest issue of V-Jump magazine in Japan which reveals she has a Majin form that she uses in combat. She basically has the same characters model, but changes her outfit, gains a tail, and her skin is Majin-pink. Up until now, Bandai Namco has been coy about her, confirming her inclusion in the story, but not that she is a fighter.

As part of our month of coverage from when Dragon Ball FighterZ was on our cover, we put together a feature detailing everything we knew about her at the time. You can read that here. We also spoke with the game's producer and director about game's the story and talked about 21 with them. You can find that video here, or by watching the embed below.

Report: Microsoft Resurrecting Fable

Game informer - Wed, 01/17/2018 - 08:54

Eurogamer reports that Microsoft is bringing back the Fable franchise according to multiple sources "close to the project," with Forza Horizon developer Playground Games at the helm.

The game is still in the early phases of development and shouldn't be expected any time soon. However, the report says the project is planned as an open-world action/RPG.

To accommodate this important task, Playground is putting 200 people on the project in a newly established office.

Original Fable developer Lionhead closed in 2016 after being acquired by Microsoft in 2006. The series' last game – Fable Legends – was a free-to-play title whose multiplayer focus was a far cry from what the series had become known for.

Our Take 
The project's long lead time could mean that it's being prepped as a launch game for Microsoft's next home console. I'll be interesting to see if Microsoft tinkers with the game's direction over that time – just one of the things that doomed Fable Legends. In the meantime, this report signals a very welcome return for one of Microsoft's great franchises.
