Fable fans will be able to amass a small fortune in the kingdom of Albion well before the next Xbox 360 entry launches next month. And they'll do it on their smartphones with the soon-to-be-released app Fable III Kingmaker.
The smartphone app was spotted by CVG in the latest issue of Xbox World magazine. Similar in style to Lionhead's Pub Games scheme for Fable II, Kingmaker will let players enjoy casual games that can earn them in-game cash in Fable III.
Fable III Kingmaker brings the conflict between "the tyrant king's Royals and the revolutionary Rebels" of Albion, letting players call the shots in smartphone based battles.
CVG offers the following description of the game: "Your mission, should you be foolish enough to accept it, is to plant virtual flags for the Royals or the Rebels, and claim power-ups in locations throughout the United Kingdom... For every flag you plant, and every power up you claim, you shall earn gold coins, which you shall then be able to transfer into the Fable III game on your Xbox 360!"
The official Fable III Kingmaker web site lists an October 1 release date for the app, but does not specify platforms. Windows Mobile seems like a safe bet.
