Nintendo have today revealed details about its latest "surgery-simulator", Trauma Centre: Under The Knife. The game which allows the player to become a leading surgeon and perform operations!

"Become the next emergency room super-star as you take on the role of rookie doctor Derek Stiles in Trauma Centre: Under The Knife, from Publisher and Developer Atlus, Co. After being emerged into a dramatic and exciting storyline, players must guide Dr Stiles through a series of operations, learning new skills and talents along the way."

Expanding the already vast range of titles for the handheld console, Trauma Centre is merely the latest in a string of out-there titles.

"Using Nintendo DS's unique touch-screen, players are put in the heart of the action – carrying out surgery using the Nintendo DS stylus on the lower screen. The touch-screen not only displays the area of surgery, but also displays all the tools for the job including scalpels, tweezers, syringes, lasers and more. This user interface allows players to quickly select the correct tools for the job and adds realism by making the player use each individual item. The top screen is used to display vital hints and tips from colleagues, time remaining and the all-important number of mistakes made."

Trauma Centre: Under The Knife launches on the Nintendo DS across Europe on 28th April 2006.
