For everyone excited for the Wii U, here's a Wii U GamePad guided tour from Nintendo's E3 2012 press conference by Nintendo America President Reggie Fils-Aime. 

We've been hearing about the Wii U GamePad for months, but so far we've only had a vague idea of exactly how it will work. Nintendo cleared everything up at their press conference this morning, and gave us a good long look at all of the features for this innovative controller.

The GamePad will feature a built in accelerometer, gyroscope, and rumble feature, as well as a camera and microphone. The layout is pretty straightforward, consisting of all the buttons and joysticks you'd come to expect from any controller, but with that big ol' touchscreen in the middle.

Be sure to check out the rest of our coverage of Nintendo's announcements, including Nintendo Land, Zombie U, and Pikmin 3.

Ubisoft had an excellent E3 2012 press conference with a little something for everyone, even throwing their hat into the Wii U ring with seven announced games.

Ubisoft Co-Founders Yves Guillemot and Yannis Mallat had more to say right after the press conference ended, visiting with Blair Herter and Jessica Chobot to talk ZombiU and Rayman Legends for the Wii U, Assassin's Creed 3, and the new IP they closed the show with and had everybody abuzz over, Watch Dogs.

There might be plenty of people taking a wait and see approach with the unique Wii U controller, but not Ubisoft. They seem downright giddy over the possibilities. Check out the video right below.

Nintendo Land for Wii U Announced

Ground was broken on Nintendo Land for the Wii U at the Nintendo E3 2012 Press Conference.  The video game publisher said that the goal of this party game is to unite living rooms and people all around the world. That, of course, means Nintendo Land will feature multiplayer gameplay for up to five participants, or, if you want to get cute, "antendees." There will be a total of 12 mini-games, or "attractions" in the final version of Nintendo Land. Five of the 12 games will be on the E3 2012 showfloor at Nintendo's booth.

The Nintendo Land games list so far includes Donkey Kong's Crash Course, Luigi's Ghost Mansion, Animal Crossing: Sweet Day, The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest and Takamaru's Ninja Castle.  Each attraction allows you to further explore a renowned Nintendo franchise.

Luigi's Ghost Mansion was the Nintendo Land mini-game shown off the most during the E3 press conference. The demo had one player assume the role of a ghost and only be visible on the Wii U Gamepad screen. Everyone else (up to four players) controlled a flashlight-wielding ghost hunter on the television. Like Chase, a tech demo seen at the last E3, Nintendo Land for Wii U demonstrated a unique gameplay that the individual Wii U Gamepad screen can provide.
