Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 will ship for the Nintendo DS on July 1, Atlus USA announced today. Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 is a direct sequel to the original game released in 2005.
The fast-paced medical gameplay popularized in the original will return along with Trauma Center characters Derek and Angie, who will be dealing with the aftereffects of GUILT. Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 will also include numerous enhancements, including new difficulty modes and new operations.
In the game, GUILT is no more, as Dr. Derek Stiles and Nurse Angie Thompson faced humanity’s greatest threat and triumphed. However, in the aftermath, the characters find themselves forced to deal with the disastrous consequences of the killer virus.
In addition to the new operations and difficulty modes (actually, just one new mode: “easy play”), the game will include improved tool utility and clearer directions.
