    From IGN:
    "Publisher Atlus on Tuesday revealed that it is underway with a full-blown sequel to the sleeper Wii title, Trauma Center: Second Opinion. The game, called Trauma Center: New Blood, will feature an all-new storyline and characters in addition to new gameplay types and visual enhancements.

    New Blood follows both Dr. Markus Vaughn and Valerie Blaylock, two Alaskan surgeons with the Healing Touch who are recruited into the Concordia Medical Institute after their local facilities closes down. Once there, they learn that the doctors on staff are regularly more concerned with maintaining their excessive lifestyles than they are with the patients they tend to. Markus and Valerie are eventually taken into a government organization known as Caduceus, where they begin to learn about a vast conspiracy.

    New Blood follows two doctors this time around because the game comes complete with a fully functioning two-player cooperative mode. This is not some gimmicky extra where one player holds the Wii remote and the other a nunchuk, either. Instead, gamers will have full control over each character, both operating with all their tools at the same time.

    This Trauma Center also corrects several oversights with the first game. Obviously, there's the brand new storyline, which won't be confused with any DS predecessor. The characters are this time brought to life with full voice work. There's a seamlessly integrated online score ranking system, which makes use of WiiConnect24 to upload data. And finally, New Blood runs in both 480p and 16:9 widescreen modes.

    The title ships this holiday. "


    Hurrah! US Euro gamers are still waiting for the first game though.

    The first title was great, even if it was a port of the DS version (more or less).
    I hope its in 16:9 and 480p (come on Nintendo make it standard).

    EDIT: Didn't read that it is 16:9 and 480p, but I still stand firm make it standard.

    See that hole in your wall?
    I look forward to this one. I liked the Wii version much more than the DS version of TC1.

    Great.

    I wonder if my grandchildren will still be alive to play it, when it gets released in Europe?

    How about an aids infected heart that is about to explode and they defuse it before it explodes, possibly infecting everybody there?

    Make it a Spider-SIN type infected heart and I said you got yourself a dramatic/climatic last boss-battle there!

    Looks sweet, me and my wife both loved the first game on the DS, playing co-op together would be a blast!

    I feel so ashamed that I sold the DS version of Trauma Center without finishing it, but I look forward to a full-blown version for the Wii, the "port" was alright, but one that is fully designed to take advantage of the Wii (I especially like the 2-player option) Let's see what happens.
