Nintendo's press conference at E3 2012 showcased a Zombi U gameplay demo. The Wii U-exclusive third-person shooter uses the Wii U Gamepad's screen in conjunction with your television. Players searching their inventory, for example, will see on their Wii U their list of available items, while on their television they will see their character rummaging through a bag.

The gamepad adds additional features to Zombi U gameplay, including sniping, door hacking, and shake free, which frees you from the grasp of zombies by shaking your Wii U (just don't shake it too hard, lest we hear of airborne Wii U smashing TV screens!).

Disney Epic Mickey 2

Disney Interactive announces today that we'll finally get our hands on Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two on November 18, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii. That date is important because, as the internets tells me, it is considered to be the official birthday of both Mickey and MInnie Mouse, and it was the day that Mickey's first cartoon, "Steamboat Willie," debuted. Cool, huh?

Get you hands on Mickey and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit as you paint your way through this musical adventure. If you haven't already, check out our interview with Warren Spector about this newest masterpiece as well as this trailer about what it takes to bring the magic to life.

In case you missed it, here's the Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition gameplay video from E3 2012.

Arkham City wowed us all last year, and now it will wow us again on the Wii U! Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition will use the GamePad to give players more control over the Caped Crusader, allowing for a simpler inventory interface and enhanced controls for some of the many gadgets already featured in the game.

One feature in particular that stands out is the new controls for remote controlled batarangs, which can now be controlled with the GamePads built-in gyroscope and touchscreen. Check it all out below.

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.

The Autobots return for all-out war in Autobot City in this next installment of the Transformers franchise, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, previewed in a cinematic trailer for E3 2012. Set for release on the Xbox 360 and PS3, Fall of Cybertron features fan favorites, including Metroplex (known as Scramble City when transformed), who absolutely dwarfs all over Autobots when Cybertron awakens him at the end of this trailer.
The video doesn't show any of the gameplay we'll experience in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron--actually, the whole thing has a kind of Michael Bay feel to it (as in, we have no idea what's going on... stuff's just blowing up)--but if it's any indicator for how action-packed this game will be, we can expect it to have about as much combat as Dynasty Warriors.

The Rayman: Legends Wii U gameplay video from the Ubisoft E3 2012 Press Conference is as fun to watch as it should be to play with up to five of your friends. (Yes, five!)

Keeping the same successful formula of the award winning Rayman: Origins, bringing the game to the Wii U allows for more interactive gameplay and four controller options to choose from.  Senior Game Manager Michael Micholic introduces a new flying green character named Murphy who was created specifically to take full advantage of the Wii U features.  Oh yeah, the game brings fourth a new soundtrack, new maps, and new co-op combos!

Tease yourself in this video and get excited for the fast-paced side-scrolling action of the upcoming Rayman: Legends game that does not have an official release date at this time.

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.

Get ready to hit the pitch with FIFA 13, and check out the official trailer from E3.

FIFA 13 will continue the franchise's tradition of immersing gamers and soccer fans alike with its depth and crisp gameplay. If you've never played any of the FIFA games, now would be a good time to start.

FIFA 13 comes out on September 30. For more, check out the entire Microsoft E3 press conference.

Wii Fit U Announced At The Nintendo E3 2012 Press Conference

Wii Fit U for the forthcoming Nintendo Wii U console is making sure you don't slouch in your commitment to exercise during the Wii-to-Wii-U transition.  The new game will attempt to step up your workout routine by adding the Wii U Gamepad for Wii U Fit  and the portable Fitness Meter. This pedometer-sized device will enable you to track your on-the-go activities and upload them to the Wii U console later on. Wii Fit U will also be receptive of your data from the previous two Wii Fit games, so you don't lose your progress.

The Nintendo E3 2012 Press Conference also spotlighted new Wii Fit U mini-games. One of the more involved mini-game examples was a slalom game in which you'll lay down on the Wii Fit Balance Board and hold the Wii U Gamepad in your hands while speedily making your way to the bottom of the track.  Does Wii Fit U sound like it fits you?
