Alan Wake's American Nightmare stumbles into the light with new trailer

Alan Wake was a long time coming, and while the 360-exclusive didn’t pay off on all its potential, after playing the two DLC episodes that finished the first game’s story, we still wanted to see where the series was going. It turns out Remedy’s adventure will continue in the XBLA-exclusive American Nightmare. But if you watch the trailer, you’ll notice this downloadable looks like a “real” game. See for yourself…

Picking up on threads left over from the first game, Alan is out to find Mr. Scratch, his evil doppelganger. Taking place in Arizona and promising fewer places to hide, the combat, dodging and gunplay looks to follow the same light vs dark style of the original. Hopefully we’ll have some more info on the title soon, but this game looks like it takes XBLA titles to new heights.
