Paging Dr. Stiles to Trauma Center 2

By Spencer . April 4, 2008 . 9:44pm

tc1.jpgAfter seeing Trauma Center: New Blood at E3 last year, I asked Atlus if we would see Trauma Center on the DS again. It’s happing this year. Derek Stiles and Angie Thompson fight against GUILT brings them to Africa three years after the events in Trauma Center: Under the Knife and seven years before Trauma Center: New Blood.


Drawing from the plot of Trauma Center: New Blood, war is part of the storyline for Trauma Center 2. Dr. Stiles visits a refugee camp from a civil war in Africa where he meets new allies. Sylvia is in charge of the camp and Adelle is the novice surgeon. Japan gets a crack at a second round of stylus surgery on August 7. A North American release is inevitable.


Also did you notice how Derek has changed? His original look from Trauma Center: Under the Knife is on the right.

    so… what does people recomend me… a DS one or a wii one?

  • EvilAkito

    ^ Personally, I think the Wii games are better than the DS game. But they’re all worth playing. Keep in mind though that the DS one is very difficult and will likely provoke you to break your DS in rage.

    I never did finish my DS one… or my Wii one.. okay, GUILT and RAGE both got to me, but I still like to crack them open every so often to give it a go. So, eventually I’ll end up beating them sometime in the possible future…. eventually.

    Oh, and what’s with the new effeminate Dr. Stiles? I miss the rather desheveled hair, really, if that’s him on the JP website, I almost mistook him for a gal. Bring the old him back!

  • Donnington

    Every so often I fool myself into believing I can complete those X-missions and everytime I fail, still that hasn’t put me off the idea of buying this new one. I’m a sucker for punishment.

    And that clearly isn’t Dr Stiles, I refuse to believe it unless he’s had a sex change. Diana Stiles? Has a ring to it.

  • TacoBeaver

    derek looks like a girl x_x

  • nika

    you guys need to work on your androgeny knowlegde, whoever that guy is he is clearly male :P

    Taco, I found the Wii’s main missions (for both doctors) easier than the DS’s main mission.

    …You should get all three. By that I mean the DS versions of UtK and UtK II, and New Blood on Wii. :>

    Oh boy, I can’t wait! I always liked Trauma Center on the DS a lot better than on the Wii. It just didn’t seem quite right to be sitting several feet away from the screen and ostensibly using a scalpel. Tacobeaver, the DS version really is a challenge, and there’s no setting for difficulty, but I found it incredibly rewarding to be able to get through it. Too bad the old art style didn’t carry over, though. I kind of associate that dude’s stylings with Shin Megami Tensei, and everyone looks sort of haunted and malnourished.

    The new DS game actually has adjustable difficulty settings, FYI 8D

    That IS the old him, the original one on the first TC game. (unless you were talking about the ACTUAL NEW Dr Stiles.) and he doesn’t look anything like a girl here! if anything, he looks the most androgynous on Trauma Center: Second Opinion! When I first saw its box, I thought he was a female nurse! I had to look closely to realize he wasn’t a girl! LOL.

    And his hair is much less untidy here than on the other games.
