Serious medical edutainment software Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition is coming to the PlayStation 4 on August 12 in North America and August 13 in Europe, developer Bossa Studios has announced.

Anniversary Edition features such new "what could go wrong?" levels as eye and teeth examinations, new environments, stat tracking and more. Watch a trailer celebrating how frantic the game can be after the break.

The slicing and dicing simulator, which features such easy-to-learn surgery techniques as extracting a brain with a hammer, will be available for $12.99 (€10.99, £8.99). Despite its authenticity, four out of the five doctors we didn't actually ask said being awarded a platinum trophy in the game is not equivalent to earning an MD.

Sounds like another industry afraid of new media, if you ask us.
