The first image from the next entry in the Alan Wake series has been released.

As seen on GameInformer, it shows the titular author wielding his trusty torch and what looks like some kind of power tool. A nail gun? A drill, perhaps? What with that and the flannel shirt, it looks like he's about get stuck into some serious DIY.

A road sign behind him reads "Night Springs 15" while the hoarding for the Desert Shore Motel can also be seen.

Beyond that, we know nothing other than that it's in development for Xbox Live Arcade, it's thought to be titled Alan Wake's Night Springs and gets a full reveal at the Spike VGA event on 10th December.

In the meantime, feel free to theorise away.
