Nintendo Press Conference 6/5/12

Nintendo came locked and loaded to show off an array of new Wii U titles, as well as a few 3DS titles, for gamers everywhere.  I will admit, last year, I was weary of the Wii U and the Wii U gamepad.  Well, after getting to go to the press conference, I am now extremely excited about the Wii U and the new options the Wii U gamepad gives gamers everywhere.  Below you will find a list of some of the games that Nintendo showcased at their conference and a couple of bullet points for each title... Oh, and Zombi U looks awesome and my inner child totally wants to play Lego City Undercover.  Good job Nintendo, you now have me excited about the Wii U and looking forward to check them out on the E3 floor this week.
