Alan Wake 2, Character Card #7: Ilmo and Jaakko Koskela

Yesterday, Remedy published the seventh part of their Character Card series, a continuing social media feature which teases the upcoming characters set to appear in Alan Wake 2.

We're less than two weeks away from the game, and things are getting serious! Over the past couple of months, we've heard about Saga Anderson, Alex Casey, Alan Wake, Tim BreakerKiran Estevez and Robert Nightingale.

The seventh card introduces not one but two characters that we will meet as Saga Anderson, Ilmo and Jaakko Koskela. Both characters are played by Peter Franzén, but each has very different personalities and drives.

Peter Franzén's involvement was announced back in June with Summer Game Fest. Franzén is an acting legend in Finland with a successful career spanning almost three decades. He is perhaps best known for his work in Vikings, in which he starred as King Harald Finehair across three seasons. You can check the local reaction to the cast reveal HERE

Text Reads:
 "Proud Finnish Americans from the town of Watery, Washington, the Koskela brothers are identical twins. Ilmo is a shrewd entrepreneur who owns numerous businesses around Watery, including the local attraction Coffee World. Loud and jovial, his energy fills every room he's in. Jaakko is quieter, and while he lacks his brother's ambition, he enjoys working with Ilmo and is devoted to his family. They are something of a double act."
