This news has been bouncing around from site to site and more speculation has been running wild.
The Wiire is reporting that “Vash” from Game-Hackers.com has decompiled the flash website of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 and looking at the code, you can make many guesses as to what it all means.
Here’s the first bit of code that looked weird:
preorderBtn1 = new preorderBtn();
Pre-order? Like, as in, a retail release? The next line of code that catches my eye is “bronik.” It is my new word (until I find one that exceeds it in cool):
<broniks text=”BADNIKS” />
One of the big questions revolves around the length of an “episode.” The code leads us to believe that there will be 4.
The final thing found within the site is a series of buttons within some mystery image that is currently not in use:
Could this represent the 4 zones of “Episode 1?” Could it be 4 characters (who would be the green one)? Are Sonic and Tails teaming up with Mario and Luigi (lol)? Do the buttons represent the four platforms that this game will release on (Wii, 360, PS3, and iPhone)? Your guess is as good as mine.
