Trauma Team operates on Wii

Follow-up to critically acclaimed Trauma Center series to hit US Wii in 2010; allows for play in six fields of medicine.


Though gamers may have been avoiding for fear of virus attacks, fans of the surgery series Trauma Center may want to take a look because the publisher has just announced a new entry in the franchise.

We know what you're thinking and no. Just no.

Since the first game was announced for the DS back in 2004, the series has spawned several titles across both the DS and Wii, though all have only allowed gamers to take on the role of a surgeon. Trauma Team, or Hospital as it will be known in Japan, currently only announced for the Wii, marks a new direction for the series as players will be able to take on the role of a general surgeon, diagnostician, emergency medical technician, orthopedic surgeon, endoscope technician, and medical examiner.

The game is also said to feature hand-drawn art, Japanese animation-inspired story sequences, and “high quality” voice acting. Atlus has not given any details on gameplay, and, in particular, how the new medical roles will differ, but more of the puzzle-based gameplay from the other games in the series is to be expected.

While the game is due for release in the US Spring 2010, a UK release date and publisher has not been announced. Atlus is set to reveal more on the title at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, so keep an eye on our E3 page for more.
