Chinese Marines practice ship to shore heliborne via Chinese Defense Blog.

Mark my words.  The next thing we will see from the Chinese military industrial complex will be a new heavy lift helicopter.  Quite honestly they're behind schedule with it but that would be one of the last pieces they need to make their forces formidable on all levels.

I imagine the hold up is timetable.  Do they have enough time to develop a tiltrotor or similar type, or do they stick with a traditional setup.

Considering the fact that we haven't seen anything I'd bet that they're working on an advanced design like we are.  You think the J-20 was a surprise when we saw it flying?  The Marine Corps and Army are gonna shit themselves when they see a tilt-rotor gunship and a CH-53 sized cargo version.
