E3 2012: Nintendo Land to Show Off the GamePad

A theme park of well-known attractions
Nintendo Land will arrive on Wii U, which will primarily aim to make use of the GamePad for innovative gameplay through a compilation of themed mini-game experiences. It'll feature game areas based on three big franchises: Zelda Battle Quest, Animal Crossing Sweet Day and Luigi's Mansion Ghost Mansion.
It'll make use of Miiverse for multiplayer, which will be expanded upon in an upcoming roundtable. There'll be standard multiplayer as well, with Wii Remotes used alongside the GamePad, with the latter having a different perspective. An example shown was in Luigi's Mansion 'Haunting Hijinks', where the GamePad had an overhead view of the other players running through a maze, similar to the Chase Mii concept shown off at E3 2011.
Will Nintendo Land enjoy the same success as Wii Play? What do you think?
