Atlus-published brawler The Cursed Crusade won’t unleash its weighty, gory combat on punters until October 25. Watch this trailer while a single, disappointed tear trickles down your face.

Gamespot reports this is at least the second public delay of the title, which was originally slated for a northern summer 2011 release before being pushed back to October 11.

To help you through the pain, Atlus has released a new story trailer focusing on the relationship between two primary characters, a templar named Denz and the a mercenary called Esteban. Both have been caught up in the Fourth Crusade and the titular curse.

The Cursed Crusade will release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and features two-player split screen or online co-op multiplayer. It’s major boasting point is the combat, bragging of more than 90 combos and 130 weapons in an unusually solid melee system.
