Alan Wake may not have been Microsoft's best-selling Xbox 360 exclusive, but the Remedy-developed survival horror action adventure will be returning. That fact was confirmed at the Spike TV Video Game Awards tonight, with the announcement of Alan Wake: American Nightmare.

Titular hero Alan Wake is again the star of the show as the writer journeys to another remote town. According to the trailer, Wake is facing off against a new supernatural villain, Mr. Scratch. The two do battle using the powers of light (for Wake) and darkness (for Scratch).

The trailer did not indicate when Alan Wake: American Dream will see release, nor on which platforms. However, the title had previously been pegged as an Xbox Live Arcade release.
