Abruptly today, Nintendo has announced the fourth Labo kit, a cardboard enclosure for the Switch itself to transform the system into a makeshift VR headset. 

Similar to mobile phone VR and its cardboard headsets, Labo VR is a shell which players put the actual Switch inside of and view distinct images produced by the halves of the screen with each eye. Joycons are attached to the sides of the headset to track motion as you move your head around.

Arriving 4/12, only on #NintendoSwitch.https://t.co/PCxm9sZSed pic.twitter.com/B21Fa2FLCQ

The packages come as a starter kit, which has the headset and a gun attachment with it, and a variety kit. The latter includes other items seem in the initial Labo reveal video last year, including a bird, a camera, a wind pedal, and an elephant. The extra items in the variety kit can also be purchased separately.

Nintendo hasn't detailed the software that will come with the variety kit, but the ESRB rating suggests fantasy violence. Considering it comes with a blaster, we can only assume that, much like most VR games, it will probably be a shooter.

Labo VR Kit releases on the Switch on April 12.
