Chillingo (publisher of, among other things, Zen Bound and iDracula) just sent us a last minute, Friday afternoon announcement about a new 3D RPG-looking game coming to the iPhone called Vampire Origins.

The screenshots you can see are from part one of a trilogy, though further details on what we can expect in terms of gameplay and storyline are a little thin on the ground.

Vampire Origins looks like a good old ‘Van Helsing versus the blood suckers’ type of tale, with some fantastic looking 3D visuals and character art.

The swordplay action also appears to be quite prevalent, with detailed and atmospheric environment designs for you to battle it out with the long-toothed vamps.

Watch this space.
