Trauma Center for Wii launch

In the States, anyway.

Atlus has confirmed that Trauma Center: Second Opinion will go on sale on the same day the Nintendo Wii launches in the US.

By the sounds of things, it's going to be a remake of the original DS title - but it'll feature new graphics and animations, and you'll perform operations using the Wii remote and the nunchuk controller. You can also expect a second playable character, plus new missions and a choice of difficulty modes.

But when will Second Opinion arrive in Europe? Well, Nintendo distributes the game over here, so we asked them. A spokesperson told Eurogamer: "We know that everyone is as excited as we are about the pending launch of the Wii, and as a result there is a lot of speculation online.

"We ask people to be patient as all will be revealed in due course." Ah well. Nice pun, anyway.

The first TC title, Under the Knife, has proved so popular in the States that Atlus is planning to re-issue the game over there - but Nintendo has no such plans for Europe.

"The game is widely available here in the UK and continues to sell well, so we have no plans to re-issue," the spokesperson said.
