Widget Satchel Spreads Mischief On Nintendo Switch This Year

Widget Satchel Logo

Noble Robot has announced that Widget Satchel will release on Nintendo Switch, their ferret-powered “mischief game for the masses.”

In this “ferretroidvania,” you play as Sprocket – a pet ferret that’s living on a remote space station. Evading your human caretakers, you must steal widgets and socks before stashing them. Because you’re a ferret.

The more that you steal, the heavier Sprocket becomes – requiring more skill to overcome the junk and robot-packed levels.

The widgets that you hoard can be turned into doohickies such as magnets, which can be used to access areas that were otherwise closed off.

Widget Satchel will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2019.
