E3 2011 was huge for Nintendo and their new console, the Wii U. That's why we brought in our 360 degree camera so you could place yourself right in the middle of the action and scope out The Big N's booth for yourself. While we were able to skip the hour-long lines for you, we haven't yet invented a way for you to reach through space and time to interact with what you'll see. But hey, there's always next year right?

I personally made a little game to find people who were obviously intrigued by our magical contraption and follow them like an all-knowing puppet god, but I obviously have a lot of mental problems. How about you? Enjoy our 360 camera view of Nintendo's booth? Got suggestions? Let us know!

Super Mario 3D is coming to the Nintendo 3DS and we got Krysta Yang, Nintendo's North America PR Coordinator, to show us some of the new features in this E3 2011 interview!  Get a better feel for what's in store as we go through new level designs, 3D innovation, and oh yeah--Tanooki Goombas ARE COMING!!!  See the latest right here with our extended coverage of E3 2011 here at G4TV.com!

Kid Icarus: Uprising gets a pep talk from the Unsinkable Krysta Yang, Nintendo of America's P.R. Coordinator at E3 2011. 

Pit returns in an all-new (not remastered or rehashed) Kid Icarus adventure and he's come a long way from the sprite-rendered 2D videogame that flew onto television screens 25 years ago.

A 3-on-3 multiplayer mode provides variety and the Augmented Reality technology of the 3DS uses collectible cards (distributed separately) that can be made to fight when the 3DS camera is pointed at them.  You'll just have to see it!

Nintendo's ubiquitous P.R. Coordinator, Krysta Yang, gives G4 the skinny on Star Fox 64 3D at E3 2011.

Everyone's favorite bipedal stellar vulpine, Fox McCloud, and his crew get remastered for Nintendo 3DS.  Yes, it's the same game from the Nintendo 64 but with 3D depth of field.

The most intriguing feature is in the multiplayer function thanks to the 3DS camera that let's the player see the faces of their opponents when they blow them into oblivion.  So, while you won't be able to taste their tears, you can see them screaming.

Our First Look At Mario Kart 3DS From E3 2011

Mario Kart is a staple for every Nintendo console to date. Mario Kart for the Nintendo 3DS will be the next in a long line of racing games starring everyone's favorite plumber, princess and dinosaur. One of the new additions in Mario Kart 3DS is a sail for the karts.

"The first track I played had me zipping along green hills with pipes protruding from them and overgrown fungi peppering the aptly titled Mushroom Kingdom. Powerups and controls were as they were on Mario Kart DS, but this isn't a simple rehash.

During several points on the map I encountered booster pads before ramps that would launch me high into the air, at which point my craft would sprout a sail allowing me to guide it's slow decent. Pulling back made the vessel swoop up, and forward made it dive. This simple para-gliding mechanic was extremely responsive and and gave a good deal of variety to the proceedings."

Get all the details from our Mario Kart 3DS preview.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D Impressions From E3

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D marks Solid Snake's debut on Nintendo's new handheld console. The game started out as Metal Gear Solid 3 and is now being ported to the 3DS. Just because the original was an amazing game doesn't mean this one might need some work.

"It all sounds good on paper, but the reality is less than ideal. Simply put, the controls need some work. In the original game Snake couldn't move and shoot simultaneously. Players held down a trigger to go into first-person mode, and used the left analogue stick to aim from there. Since the 3DS only has one analogue stick, this should have been a simple conversion. Instead, Snake can now move and shoot at the same time ala MGS4, only there's no analogue stick, so aiming by using the face buttons as a d-pad never feels quite natural. Sure you're more agile, but it feels loose and awkward compared to Subsistence's slow, methodical tactical espionage action."

Street Fighter X Tekken at E3 2011 has captivated fans of both immortal fighting franchises, excited to see the Street Fighter and Tekken universe fight together. Capcom wizard Seth Killian joined Kevin Pereira and Morgan Webb live on stage at E3 2011 Live for a gameplay demo.

Nintendo continues its strong showing at E3 2011 with screenshots for Super Mario 3D for the Nintendo 3DS.

Take a look!

Super Mario 3DS Screenshots have arrived. They're 2D, but they manage to look good anyway.

To the joy of fans across the world Nintendo announced at E3 2011 that Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is getting a rerelease on the Nintendo 3DS, as Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of TIme 3D. As one of the most beloved and iconic games from one of the most respected series it comes as no surprise that Nintendo would being Ocarina of Time back for yet another run.
