Co-op gameplay is a huge part of Atlus' upcoming third person action adventure game The Cursed Crusade
. Players will take the role of Denz, a holy templar, and can recruit a friend or family member to take the role of roguish mercenary Esteban; though the AI will take control of Esteban for those of you who prefer to play in single-player.
The new trailer showcases the split-screen gameplay, although the game can also be played online. The split-screen mode can be played using either a vertical or horizontal split. When players co-operate together, they can perform cooperative holds, finishing moves, as well as reviving each other if necessary.
The Cursed Crusade
has been delayed slightly, and is now due to be released in Autumn / Fall 2011.
