UPDATE: Is Mario getting a new voice actor?

Charles Martinet


Charles Martinete has updated his profile with the following:

Hi! Sorry for the concern… I am still the voice of Mario, Luigi, Wario, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi… waaa! Sorry… and WaLuigi too… I think fun required that I click a button that says “currently working at”, or something…. have a fun day!!!! WooHoo!!!


Charles Martinet may be the former voice of Mario if his facebook page is anything to go by. According to the voice actor’s social media profile he is now the “former Mario at Nintendo”. There has been no official comment from Martinet or Nintendo regarding his current position with the company.

Over his career Martinet has done the voices of Mario, Luigi, Wario, Walugi, Paarthurnax in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Orvus in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, and acted as the narrator in Bit.Trip Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien. These just to name a few.
