You know you loved Operation. You probably still pull it out on the weekends, don’t lie. So for some reason, we’re intrigued by surgery. You know this, I know this, Atlus knows this.

We’ve posted some details on the playable characters in Trauma Team, but that didn’t satiate your desire for what surgery is to come in the game, did it? Fortunately, the very first gameplay footage has been revealed for the game, with lots of surgeries and techniques to gaze upon over CR-S01’s shoulder.

The video shows you not only the techniques that you’ll be using, but also how to use the Wiimote when applying them. I don’t know about all of you, but I’ve always had a sort of shaky time being precise with my Wiimote, so hopefully that won’t add to what should surely be a bloody mess.

With a release date of April 20th, that gives plenty of time for more video reveals on the other gameplay modes we briefly discussed in the previous post. So keep your eyes peeled.

IRVINE, CA -- JANUARY 5, 2010 -- Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today released a new video focusing on the Surgery portion of the upcoming medical entertainment experience Trauma Team, set to release for Wii™ on April 20, 2010. The video offers fans their first glimpse at gameplay footage from the upcoming game, presenting a wide variety of situations and operations specific to CR-S01, the lead character of the game's Surgery campaign. One of six different core gameplay types in Trauma Team, the Surgery mode of the game will be the most familiar to veterans of the Trauma Center franchise, yet still offers visual and design improvements over previous games.

"Really, cutting people open has never looked so good," began Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus, before being tackled and carried away by authorities.

Bigger and more exciting than ever before, Trauma Team is the ultimate medical drama! Encounter unprecedented depth across six distinct fields of medicine: play as a general surgeon, diagnostician, E.M.T., orthopedic surgeon, endoscopic technician, and forensic examiner. Follow the drama as never before with all-new dynamic story sequences inspired by Japanese animation and comics; each chapter comes vividly to life with a style seen nowhere else! Hand-drawn art, innovative animation, and quality voice acting perfectly capture the raw intensity, excitement, and danger of every heart-pounding moment!

Stay tuned for videos featuring Trauma Team's other five core gameplay modes: Endoscopy, Forensics, First Response, Diagnosis, and Orthopedics!
