Dragon Quest X is making a big effort to blow up the franchise from offline RPG adventure to online RPG world community.
This approach isn't as crazy an idea as it sounds; Bioware has told me in the past that The Old Republic contains multiple sequels to its well-loved RPG Knights of the Old Republic, since each class contains its own story and characters. Van Helsing's leveling system is reminiscent of Titan Quest, my all-time favorite action RPG, with the option to freely spend ability points between the melee, ranged and magic trees.
Standing amongst the horde as a one-man army is on such draw in action RPGs, but Van Helsing takes this quite literally, occasionally the n-th degree, and without much nuance.
Neocore Games, the developer responsible for the King Arthur strategy series, brings the character alive once more in a new, action RPG adventure in the style of Diablo and Titan Quest.
