Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has confirmed Natal technology will feature in Fable III - but he still won't say how it will work.

During his talk on Fable III at the Game Developers Conference, Molyneux told the audience, "Natal is wonderfully additive to this experience. It really does add to the Fable world."

In what way, Peter? "I can't give you specifics about that, but it's been a real joy to put some Natal stuff in there."

Earlier in his speech Molyneux announced that John Cleese will play a butler in the game, and revealed that President Obama was an inspiration for the game's ruling dynamic.

He also confirmed Fable III will feature the "British man hug", where the parties involved ensure their lower halves do not touch - as opposed to the American man hug, which is full frontal. "Americans really do love a bit of a grind," observed Molyneux.
