The lights are on
Alan Wake has new adventures ahead of him, but they won't be found on a disc. That's the word coming from XBLA Fans, as the site reports that a new game called Alan Wake: Night Springs is being developed by Remedy for a release on Xbox Live Arcade. The report comes from "an extremely trusted source" of the poster. The site claims to have seen screenshots from the game, but did not share the screens in the initial posting. No details were offered regarding the gameplay of the title. If the report of a new Alan Wake game is true, it's pretty exciting news. Many fans of the original game had all but given up hope of a new installment in the series. As games like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Dead Rising: Case Zero have proven, the downloadable space can be a excellent home for big characters and franchises.
