The seventh (and last?) Japanese trailer for Trauma Team is up yet it doesn’t shed any more light on what the killer disease is this time. It does show that whatever it is, it causes a lot of internal hemorrhaging. Maybe beyond Class IV? It also hints the protagonist CR-S01’s father maybe behind it all and have signed a pact with evil.
On the other hand, those who order early in Japan will be able to collect this special DVD from stores featuring a high quality collection of all the trailers and interviews with the voice actors namely…
- Takahiro Sakurai as CR-S01
Other roles – Cloud from FFVII Advent Children, Suzaku from Code Geass
- Keiji Fujiwara as Gabriel Cunningham
Other roles – Keisei from Kurobane Hime, Rad from Baccano
- Masashi Sugawa as Hank Freebird
Other roles – Seiji from Darker Than Black, Ray from Macross 7
- Hitomi Nabatame as Maria Torres
Other roles – Margery from Shakugan no Shana, Unchou from Ikkitousen
- Akeno Watanabe as Mira Kimishima
Other roles – Diana from Spice and Wolf, Tia from Shakugan no Shana
- Shizuka Itou as Tomoe Tachibana
Other roles – Boota from Gurren Lagann, Kunogi from xxxHolic
I’d prefer it if it was the soundtrack or an artbook to be honest… ^^;
Hmmm, I think Atlus used this trailer teasing marketing strategy before… Can’t remember for which game though.
In any case, the game developer has been releasing a new trailer everyday in collaboration with Famitsu, each trailer featuring one of the six doctors from their upcoming Trauma Team game. So we now have (from left to right)…
- Maria Torres – Paramedic
- Gabriel Cunningham – Diagnosis
- Naomi Kimishima – Forensics
- CR-S01 – Surgeon
- Tomoe Tachibana – Endoscopy
- Hank Freebird – Orthopedics
No gameplay, just cutscene footage but still interesting to watch. You can read the full character profiles and view actual gameplay on the NA website or visit the Japanese site to listen to the English vocal theme song.
Theme song doesn’t sound too good but the BGM on the other hand seems to be in the same style as previous titles. Well, I guess it is by the co-composer Atsushi Kitajoh of New Blood after all.
It feels like it’s been ages since we heard anything about the new upcoming third Trauma Centre game on the Wii but it looks as if its Japanese name has been finalised as “Hospital – The 6 Doctors” (Rokunin no Ishi). It will be coming out on June 17th in Japan while North America gets its version in just over a week’s time as “Trauma Team“.
I’m a fan of the series but I really don’t like the way this new game is presented. I also prefer the old group shot than this huge collage of pictures. Unlike the last time, the NA boxart looks better.
The next title in Atlus’ operation game series “Trauma Centre” will be “Trauma Team” and the official press release description goes…
An entirely new medical entertainment experience from the makers of the award-winning Trauma Center® series. Encounter unprecedented depth across six distinct fields of medicine: play as a general surgeon, diagnostician, E.M.T., orthopedic surgeon, endoscope technician, and medical examiner.

Trauma Team is currently scheduled for release in spring 2010.
Ouch! Looks like the decision to host 227MB of those unofficial Trauma Centre OSTs privately really hit my bandwidth usage this month, eating up the full 30GB allowance and knocking my blog offline since around 08:30 BST. I don’t see many hits to those posts though, which means a lot of people must have been “leeching” off my blog even though I asked not to link directly to them nicely.
The New Blood OST being the most popular had 296 downloads (13.5GB), Second Opinion OST received 58 downloads (2.6GB) while Under The Knife OST received zero.
That only accounts for roughly half of my monthly bandwidth so I really don’t know where the other half went when my daily traffic’s halved since I decided to stop trying to cover all Japanese PSP/DS related news. Perhaps it’s because I host larger full size photos now when I’m reviewing purchases I make or taking those photo strolls.
