Caduceus to stitch up the touch screen.

Nintendo DS to undergo surgery courtesy of Atlus
There have been concerns that, despite Nintendo’s penchant for gaming innovation, third party developers might not be blessed with sufficient creative talents to conceive and develop truly interesting DS-specific titles. Indeed, when Atlus first announced its support for the DS, the games it had confirmed were basically just ports of existing titles Snowboard Kids and Choro Q.

Atlus’ latest announcement, however, serves to encourage all those hoping for something a little different. One of the first titles on the way is Caduceus, which is pitched as a ‘surgical simulator’ that makes full use of both the stylus and the microphone. It sounds a little bizarre, but thoroughly intriguing nonetheless.

Players will have to stitch up broken hearts, slice up organs with a scalpel styled stylus and all that kind of surgical carry-on. Caduceus is planned for release shortly after the launch of the DS itself, so it could be an important title serving to emphasise just how different Nintendo’s product will be in comparison to the relatively sober prospects for the PSP.

What a cool idea. Saving lives instead of taking them, should be interesting to see what the press have to say about it. But do we really care? Nope, me neither.

I like the idea of it, should be ineresting to play too, perhaps remind me of playing Operation game as a kid.

I wonder if it will include operating on cysts and weird ill flesh etc? Good stuff Atlus.

It's not new. There was a surgeon game for Amiga in the 80s, called "Surgeon".

Damn, an old Amiga game got there first, I am so disappointed. LOL.

Should be interesting to see what Atlus do with it. A lot of their games are good, especially the rpgs, so we have some hope.
