New Wii launch title: Trauma Center

Atlus USA, maker of sleeper hit Trauma Center: Under the Knife for the DS, has confirmed that Trauma Center: Second Opinion for the Wii will be a launch title. If there’s one thing I like more than confirmed launch titles it’s confirmed launch titles that can only be played on the Wii.

From Gamasutra: “Trauma Center: Second Opinion will feature new graphics and animation, new surgical implements and operation types, a second playable character with new missions, multiple difficulty modes, and a revised control system that takes advantage of the Wii’s unique remote and nunchuk-style controller.”

There was some slight speculation that this title was shaping up to be a port of the DS version with improved graphics (think the “remastered” debacle that happened to the original Star Wars movies), but this is shaping up to be largely not the case at all. And I don’t know if anyone will get this joke, but I for one am hoping there’s a “Dr. House” mode.

A final tidbit is that the DS version is getting a second re-release, which is good because no stores in my area had it the first or second time it was released. Is that how it was most places?

Happy cutting Infendo readers.
