Neocore, known for the King Arthur series, has announced The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, an action RPG "loosely" based on Bram Stoker's famous novel, Dracula. The game stars the famous vampire hunter's twinkly-eyed son – who has an apparent predilection for goofy hats – and "sets players on a fantastical journey to Borgovia, a kingdom on the very edge of Eastern Europe, and the perilous lands surrounding it." Borgovia, naturally, is overrun with monsters, monsters that presumably need slaying.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is slated to arrive by the end of 2012 on PC and Xbox Live Arcade. Watch young Van Helsing think about killing a vampire in the trailer above.
