Major Nelson has officially announced the release details for Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, as well as a few other games that will be released next month through Xbox Live Arcade.

There’s been a lot of buzz about the game since it’s preview at this year’s Consumer Electronic’s Show.  All the gameplay of Alan Wake returns.  The game will also feature both licensed music and new music exclusive to the game, including a brand new single by The Old Gods of Asgard (who sound eerily similar to Poets of the Fall, wink wink).  The game’s storyline promises a four hour campaign storyline and a separate game mode called Fight ‘Till Dawn, where you’ll have to defend yourself against respawning enemies until the sun rises.

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, developed by Remedy, the creators of Alan Wake and Max Payne, will be released February 22nd, 2012 exclusive to the Xbox Live Arcade.  The final cost of the game will be 1200 Microsoft Points or $15US.  Since this is an Xbox Live Arcade release, there will be a free demo/trial version of the game released alongside the full version.
