As if we expected his adventures to be any other kind of adventures, legendary monster hunter-killer-discusser Van Helsing is slated to have some incredible adventures soon in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, coming from TriplePoint client NeocoreGames. While we’re certainly used to Mr. Van Helsing going up against the likes of Dracula and his ilk, he’ll apparently be working at the behest of his “former supernatural foes” to deal with an all-new sort of problem. When Dracula has something he needs you to get out of his own backyard, I think we all need to be concerned.
From the press release:
Set in a gothic-noir universe resembling a fantastical 19th century Europe filled with monsters, magic, and weird technology, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will follow the son of the famed hunter, known in-game as Van Helsing, in a tale wrought with wry humor and snappy dialogue. Van Helsing, a larger-than-life hero possessing a dark yet romantic charm, will follow his path to the dismal land of Borgovia where former supernatural foes have enlisted his help to defeat a new scourge terrorizing the ravaged Eastern European city. With an assortment of extraordinary characters, an engrossing storyline, and a beautifully dark and gothic art style, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing looks to bring RPG enthusiasts an anachronistic adventure like no other.
The game is due out for XBLA and PC late this year. Getting all your shots to visit Borgovia is a bureaucratic nightmare.
