Set in medieval Europe, The Cursed Crusade follows the story of two cursed warriors fighting for their souls. "A story of salvation and survival, The Cursed Crusade brings to life the mystery and allure of the Middle Ages," says Aram Jabbari of Atlus USA. "The game's main characters are not heroes; they're just men, susceptible to temptation, easily made to feel doubt and despair. The raw, gritty accuracy of many of the game's historical locations is sharply contrasted by Denz and Esteban's supernatural struggle to save their souls. Their affliction, the Templar's Curse, threatens to accelerate their descent into hell, burning their humanity away as it engulfs the space around them in demonic flame."
The Cursed Crusade is scheduled to release in Summer 2011. You can check out a few more screenshots here
. In the meantime, we'll be waiting for an official announcement from Atlus about a North America release date for Catherine.
