The game which is set to be an updated remake to the popular Ds title Trauma Center: Under The Knife, is set to be another addition to the ever growing number of launch titles expected to debut with the Wii later this year. The game itself is shaping up to become perfect fodder for the Wii, with the titles precise surgery cuts, and procedures handled with precision and care via the innovative control scheme of the Wii.
In the company’s press release, Altus stated: “First, Trauma Center: Second Opinion was confirmed as a launch title for Nintendo’s new, highly anticipated console—Wii, which is poised to take the video game world by storm in the fourth quarter of 2006. This robust “Wii-make” of Under the Knife features new graphics and, new surgical implements and operation types, a second playable character with all-new missions, multiple difficulty modes for gamers of all skill levels, and a revised control system that takes full advantage of the revolutionary Wii Remote and Nunchuk-style controller”.
With more and more titles being confirmed for the launch of the Wii, it’s certainly going to be a battleground for smaller developers to get their titles noticed amongst some of the bigger names. Altus shouldn’t have this problem here though, as the game is looking set to become another worthy addition to the Wii’s potential collection of classic, and truely innovative titles. Hopefully this will prove to be an all round must have title for the system, and not just with hardcore gamers.
