Alan Wake’s Night Springs stands up for XBLA exclusivity
Night Springs is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Alan Wake. However, in this case it is going to be only for Xbox Live Arcade.
There is not too much known about this version as of yet but there has been a small outcry from fans that truly want a full experience with this psychological thriller. Many questions are coming up such as: How can they deliver a bold environment in such a small format? Or just a general: Huh??
Remedy has stated that they are going to treat this game as a full release and encourage us to wait for the official statement. I don’t see that happening.
My own personal question would be linked to its development. When the original Alan Wake was first shown to press, it was 2005. the game released five years later. Does this mean that it might be another long wait to play this next iteration? But on the bright side, almost every trailer that has been shown at the VGAs was released within a 12 month period from when the trailers are first shown. So at least we have that to look forward to.
We can expect to see some new screen shots in the next couple of weeks and a full trailer when the Video Game Awards air on Spike TV on December 10th.
