This week, Frushtick and I visited Nintendo Land, the happiest place in your living room.

All 12 of Nintendo Land's mini-games, each of which is modeled after a different Nintendo franchise and designed to show off the uses of the Wii U GamePad, were detailed in a recent Japanese demo video, seen above. The video touches on each mini-game, including a few we haven't seen much in action, like the elusive Octopus Dance.
