Early this year Nintendo caught everyone off guard with the reveal of Nintendo Labo—a series of cardboard peripherals you construct yourself to work in tandem with Nintendo mini-games. Nintendo initially launched Labo in two sets: the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit. They’ve hinted in the past that more sets are on the way, and last night they officially revealed a third.

The next addition to the Nintendo Labo lineup is the Vehicle Kit. This new bundle of cardboard contains everything you need to construct a setup that simulates driving a car, navigating the ocean in a submarine, and piloting a plane through “a mysterious world full of challenges.” Here’s Nintendo’s description of what you can expect:

“Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit will unlock even more ways for people to make, play and discover together, as they speed through races, battle cars equipped with extendable arms and explore a mysterious world. Each vehicle features its own controls and special moves, and with the second Key, players can even invite a co-pilot along on their in-game journey. Interacting with the assembled Toy-Con creations instantly translates into in-game actions to create a truly immersive experience – from pulling the cord on the Car to pop a wheelie, pushing the button on the Submarine to launch a grappling hook and so much more.

“As with every Nintendo Labo kit, Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit includes its own unique Nintendo Switch software designed to work with the included Toy-Con projects. Enjoy the fun of making each Toy-Con creation, playing immersive games with them, discovering how they work and even inventing new ways to play. All materials needed to complete each Toy-Con creations are included – no glue, tape, or scissors required!”

The Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit launches worldwide on September 14th. If you’d like to pick one up yourself, it’ll cost you $69.99. You can purchase it on the official Nintendo Labo website.
