Last month, we reported that Neocore Games decided their initial protagonist for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing was a bit too young to be taken seriously. So, Neocore’s designers sketched up three character variants and let the fans decide which character they’d like to see replace young Van Helsing.
Neocore Games let fans vote on whether they’d want to see The Chevalier, The Veteran, or The Mysterious Stranger become the new Van Helsing.
The voting is over, the numbers are counted, and with a whopping 72% of the votes, the next Van Helsing is: The Mysterious Stranger.
To celebrate the announcement, Neocore Games released a pretty cool speed-sketch video of their artist, Aniko Salamon, creating a new image of The Mysterious Stranger…or should I say, Van Helsing.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is an upcoming action RPG where players take control of the son of the legendary monster hunter, Van Helsing. The game is set during the 19th Century, in a fictitious countryside, somewhere in Eastern Europe. The story focuses on Van Helsing’s quest to regain control of the lands after a mad scientist unleashed his barbaric creations onto nearby villages.
The protagonist is actually the son of the original Van Helsing. Throughout The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, Van Helsing Jr. will have to side with the beasts that his father once hunted in order to defeat the new threat which plagues the land.
