The Cursed Crusade Delayed, But Trailered

By Jim Rossignol on September 29th, 2011.


Atlus’ fancy-lookin’ medieval melee-combat game The Cursed Crusade has been delayed until October 25th. I have to admit that I’m definitely interested in playing this one as the swordery looks just right. That said “looks” just right could be very different to the actuality when we get our hands on it. The output from devs Kylotonn Games has, let’s face it, been a bit variable.

A fresh story trailer below sets things up for us, and it features a lot of unsmiling men in armour, doing their thing, as well as some demons.

The Cursed Crusade Gets Demonic, Dated

By Jim Rossignol on July 14th, 2011.

It's this damned UV light on my contacts.
Atlus have announced that their medieval melee game, The Cursed Crusade, will be released October 11th, according to Gemetsu. We’ve already seen lots of sword action from this Templar-based manstabber, but now there’s a reveal of the more supernatural elements of the game, as you can see in the fire-and-demon packed trailer, below. There’s some kind of curse involved in this crusade, that’s for certain.

Cursin’ Co-Op Crusaders Crusadin’ For Christ

By Jim Rossignol on May 11th, 2011.

You've got something on your face.
The Cursed Crusade has not one but TWO vicious templar thugs for you and a chum to control as you do some fancy crusadin’. What this means is that you can team up for takedowns: one guy locks swords with an enemy while the other puts an axe in his rump, that sort of thing. Kylotonn and Atlus have released a video to demonstrate this, and while it’s actually a video of the split-screen Xbox version of the game, the principles of online co-op on the PC will be much the same. That means dudes getting axed, in a co-operative fashion. I like the cut of it.

A Cursory Glance: New Cursed Crusade Shots

By Quintin Smith on April 15th, 2011.

Medieval surgeons would make up for their shortcomings with enthusiasm

Gritty, medieval hack’n’slasher The Cursed Crusade (not to be confused with The First Templar) has some new shots out, and they’re a bit full-on for midday on a Friday. It’s almost enough to put an Englishman off his light lunch of blood sausage or kidney pie. Thoughtless French developers!

The Cursed Crusade Demonstrates Ambitions

By Jim Rossignol on January 13th, 2011.


Atlus send word that their forthcoming melee-combat game, The Cursed Crusade, has a new trailer out, and hot damn, it’s looking fine (below). The game features dudes getting stabbed, hacked, and impaled, but in a good way, you understand. Good because this is a violent game about medieval manstabbing which sprawls across Europe through besieged castles and other splendid locales. You play a cursed Templar in the game – there’s a big dollop of supernatural power under his hood – allowing you to enter a powered-up hellvision mode and kill people up with even more enthusiasm, as you can see from about one minute into the trailer.

The game – which is being developed by French dev house Kylotonn – will apparently feature online co-op and will be out this summer. Hmm, I might retroactively add this to the 2011 list, although Kylotonn did make that awful Speedball 2 rehash, so maybe not…

chop chop splat splat thank you yes

Question: how do you feel about chopping men up with swords?

a) Fruity
b) Disgusted with yourself

If a or c, you’ll probably like Cursed Crusade.
