Atlus launches Trauma Team website, now with less nicotine

I’ll admit right off the bat that I’m a huge fan of the Trauma Center games, so the new website Atlus has just launched gets me all the more excited for its upcoming Wii title, Trauma Team. Among other things, this will feature profiles for the game’s six characters, along with a look at each one’s unique field of study. 

Being unveiled one at a time, the only doctor available at the moment is Gabriel Cunningham, who you may remember seeing with a cigarette in his mouth when Colette first brought us news of the game’s announcement. If you compare the header image in that post to the one above, you’ll notice that our man Gabriel seems to have since kicked the habit. Good for him. A doctor needs to set an example, after all. 

There will also be wallpapers and media available on the site, the first of which is, again, Dr. Cunningham. He strikes a handsome pose with … wait, is that a cigarette in the background of that image? Dude, come on. I know how tough it is to quit, trust me. But you’re a doctor. You could at least pretend to live healthy. Hurry up and put that thing out while I distract everyone with the press release after the jump.



Side-effects may include difficulty blinking eyes and slack jaw!

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 12, 2009 – Atlus U.S.A., Inc., today opened the doors of the official Trauma Team™ website, the upcoming medical entertainment experience from the makers of Trauma Center® and exclusively for Wii™.
