The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing Hunts on XBLA in Q4
Written Thursday, May 10, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Immortalised by Peter Cushing in the Hammer Horror movies then transformed into a joke in the Hugh Jackman movie, legendary vampire hunter, Van Helsing is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade at the end of the year for indie action RPG, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Actually, scratch that... It's Van Helsing's son, also called Van Helsing.
Based loosely upon Bram Stoker's Dracula, indie dev NeoCore Games is working on the brand-new IP, bringing "fierce and demonic battles, memorable characters, and a refreshingly unique story that brings the legendary vampire slayer to modern audiences."
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is set in a "gothic-noir universe" inspired by 19th century Europe, albeit with its own fantastical twist, packed with creatures, magic and bizarre technology. It'll have its own brand of unique humour, with a story following the exploits of Van Helsing's son, boasting "snappy dialogue" and all of the key elements you'd expect from an action RPG.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will be rising from its grave on the Xbox Live Arcade during late Q4 2012.
