Neocore games announced they are looking to develop a more traditional style RPG game for PSN and XBLA. The game, titled The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, is looking at a Q4 2012 release date as of right now.
Neocore is known for their RTS-RPG hybrid King Arthur – The Role-Playing Wargame series as well as Crusaders: Thy Kingdom Come.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is set in a gothic-noir universe resembling a fantastical 19th century Europe filled with monsters, magic, and weird technology. The player 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, this title looks to bring RPG enthusiasts an anachronistic adventure like no other.
“Being located in Eastern Europe and having experience developing RPGs, Van Helsing is a natural fit for us; it’s a project where we can demonstrate our expertise in both domains and create something novel that RPG fans can appreciate,” said Viktor Juhász, lead writer at NeocoreGames. “We’ve always enjoyed crafting games from legendary tales, but with our own twist, and Van Helsing provides us the perfect game world to experiment with.”
