Trauma Team Calls In Sick, Delayed Until May

By Spencer . February 2, 2010 . 8:03pm

Sorry, Trauma Team won’t be in stores this April. With proper care, it will recover in time for it’s new release date, May 18. Atlus announced the one month delay in typical Atlus style, by diverting our attention with a new trailer.


Take a look at orthopedics, one of the new specialties created for Trauma Team.

    Meh, one month give or take, doesn’t make a giant difference to me. As long as we don’t go three months over or something. Regarding the trailer: holy shishkebab! Staples?! If I woke up after surgery and saw that the only thing keeping my arm together were a few staples, I’d be friggin terrified. I guess they sow it after stapling it…

    • Nah—IIRC, the biggest advantage to using staples is that stapling is several times faster than suturing. So it’s just the staples.

  • I’m torn on this game. The way it plays looks fantastic—lots of variety, very skill-based. But everything else looks like the kind of overdramatic, badly-written anime shows I avoid watching for obvious reasons. (Except the one doctor…who looks like a G-rated House rip-off.) Ughhhh.

    • Soma

      The over-dramatic atmosphere is all a part of the Trauma Center series.
      Have you never played the previous games? They’re exactly like this:

      • I’ve never played the Wii titles, but it was a lot more subdued in the first DS game…an approach I spent the entirety of the second DS game wishing they’d go back to. Doesn’t help that the artist they switched to draws in a very shoujo style.

        It’s kinda like comparing…maybe Bakemonogatari to Love Hina, to use the only example I can think of. They’re both overdramatic at times. But the former is decent (though SHAFT’s execution is…unconventional!) and the latter is, uh, crap.

        • Soma

          The Wii version is basically the same as the DS game. The art is different, they added a new character, and I think there are some bonus missions, but all in all, it was the same game.
          Though I loved both games, I did find them to be completely ridiculous. =P

  • Who’s developing this game?
    An Atlus USA team?
    Or the same team that made the other Trauma games?
    It’s kind of weird watching and seeing all these videos and screenshots in english, before the japanese ones, if there are any.

      Atlus USA has no development team. It’s the same team that made the last 2 Trauma Center games on Wii.

  • Its for the best. There are a lot of games coming out in March and April, and if Atlus didn’t bump it, Trauma Team may have gotten lost in the shuffle.
