Nintendo has teamed up with actor Penélope Cruz and her sister, Mónica Cruz, to promote another game for Nintendo 3DS. Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask features 150 puzzles, and there will be a total of 365 additional puzzles to download for free throughout the rest of the year and 2013. The puzzle game launches in North American retailers and the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS on October 26th.
Penélope Cruz, the Academy Award-winning actress, has joined forces with her sister, fellow actress Mónica Cruz, to star in a new campaign for New Super Mario Bros. 2, the side-scrolling Mario game launching on 17th August for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.
The TV advert sees Mónica and Penélope taking a bet on which sister will reach the Goal Pole at the end of the course first – with a rather unusual forfeit for who finishes last… Watch the full advert at the official Nintendo 3DS UK YouTube channel and find out how the Cruz sisters settle a score after a romp through the Muhsroom Kingdom.
“Teaming up with the Cruz sisters is a perfect fit for us. Not only because New Super Mario Bros. 2 lets two players enjoy the entire adventure playing as brothers Mario and Luigi simultaneously but because these sisters have been genuine fans of the series for many years. The co-op mode really brought out their competitive side and they had a lot of fun trying to collect as many coins as possible while racing to finish each level first.”
