NintendoLand, center of the Wii U universe

E3 is going strong, and we're wandering the floor, searching out the sights and sounds of the gaming world.

At its press conference earlier this week, Nintendo showed off the new world, NintendoLand. It's the "happiest place in gaming" and the center of the Wii U universe. Come take a look inside NintendoLand and the Nintendo booth at E3.
