Atlus announces The Cursed Crusade

Atlus, publisher of Demon’s Souls, announced today that they are publishing a new game in partnership with developer Kylotonn Entertainment called The Cursed Crusade for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

The game takes place around the end of the 12th century as a pair of ¬†warriors inflicted with The Templar’s Curse, which threatens to accelerate their descent into hell, must fight for their souls amidst the backdrop of a war-torn Medieval Europe. The game promises to provide two-player cooperative (online or local split-screen) 3rd-person, story-driven action with what appears to be a healthy dose of swordplay.

It’s scheduled to be released in Summer 2011.
