I'm a little sad that Trauma Team has been delayed from April 20th to its new release date of May 18th. Waiting an extra month for what looks to be the freshest and deepest entry in the series will be like hammering nails into my femur...which coincidentally is the subject of this new trailer.

The Orthopedics discipline is a lot more involved than just sticking bone fragments together with healing gel--it involves drills, hammers, staples, lasers and synthetic bone. Ouch! Pain aside, it's a lot more realistic than the jigsaw-puzzle-and-glue approach from past games.

IRVINE, CA -- FEBRUARY 2, 2010 -- Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today released the third entry in its video walkthrough series focused on the various modes of the multi-discipline medical experience Trauma Team for Wii™. This latest video follows the exploits of orthopedic surgeon Hank Freebird, tasked with repairing the various bones and joints that make up the human skeletal system. In addition to the new entry in the video walkthrough series, the publisher also confirmed that the game's release date would be held back for further observation, now slated to release on May 18th.

"Until watching this new video, a lot of Trauma Team fans may have a slightly disjointed notion of what the Orthopedics mode is all about," commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus. "Without a tool wheel to concern oneself with, nor a ticking clock to race against, Orthopedics is about patience and precision. Even if you think you're up to the task, it's advised that you bone up on what this video has to offer prior to the game's new May 18th release date." A mob of outraged doctors raised their scalpels and charged the podium after hearing Jabbari's puns, but the wily Atlus PR staff was able to marrowly escape.

Bigger and more exciting than ever before, Trauma Team is the ultimate medical drama! Encounter unprecedented depth across six distinct fields of medicine. Follow the drama as never before with all-new dynamic story sequences inspired by Japanese animation and comics that capture the raw intensity and drama of life in a living hospital!

Trauma Team is now scheduled for release on May 18, 2010 with an MSRP of $49.99. For more information, please visit the website www.atlus.com/traumateam.
