Charles Martinet: The New "Mario Ambassador"

In a recent Nintendo video, Charles Martinet, the voice actor renowned for his work as Mario, is seen donning a red Mario shirt and posing with his arms slightly outstretched against a white backdrop. The legendary voice actor is set to relinquish his role as Mario in future Nintendo games, beginning with the release of Super Mario Bros. Wonder on October 20, as he embraces his new role as a "Mario Ambassador". This announcement has left fans perplexed and questioning the meaning of a Mario Ambassador and the reason behind the change in Mario's voice.

Unveiling the Role of a Mario Ambassador

Both Nintendo and Martinet have made an effort to clear up the confusion through an endearing video. However, the explanation seems to have added to the uncertainty. The video features Martinet and Shigeru Miyamoto, the game director, sharing a conversation about their past experiences and their friendship. The video also attempts to shed light on Martinet's new role as "Mario Ambassador", yet the exact responsibilities of this role remain unclear.

Spreading Joy as Mario

Miyamoto spoke fondly of Martinet's time as Mario, emphasizing his joyful performances and his dedication to bringing happiness to fans around the world. As the new Mario Ambassador, Martinet will continue to interact with fans, sign autographs, and perform familiar voices at events. However, details about who will voice Mario in future games, and the reason behind Martinet stepping away from his role after nearly 30 years, are still under wraps.

Looking Forward to the New Mario

With the release of Super Mario Bros. Wonder fast approaching on October 20, fans are excited and curious to learn who will be providing the voice for the iconic character. The new voice actor will be stepping into a rich legacy of nostalgic and beloved games, marking a period of reinvention for the franchise as it ventures in new directions in gameplay.
