It's OK, we all know you didn't click the link theat lead you to this story to see everyone's favorite plumber collecting coins in New Super Mario Bros. 2, you did it simply because you wanted to see Penélope Cruz. And that's OK. After all, she and her younger sister Monica are far more appealing to the eye than the two mustached muchachos.

Make sure you stick around to the end to see Penélope bring new meaning to the term, "mustache ride."
New Super Mario Bros 2 continues the gameplay from New Super Mario Bros., featuring side-scrolling platform action as Mario or Luigi once again. The game has an obvious emphasis on coin collecting, with various items dedicated to producing large amounts of coins. These include Gold Flowers that turn blocks into coins, rings that temporarily turn enemies gold and a block mask that produces coins as Mario runs, as well as a gold variant of the Super Leaf.
The game also features a Coin Rush mode, where players can play through a set of three levels collecting as many coins as possible with only one life. Players will be able to challenge other players over Streetpass. If you're not the competitive type, you can also play co-op in like two brothers, or in the case of the Cruz's, like two sisters should.
Already out in Japan, New Super Mario Bros. 2 hits the US in just a few days, August 19, for the 3DS and 3DSXL. It will be followed by New Super Mario Bros. Wii U, likely to be released in November.
