Charles Martinet excluded from Super Mario Bros. Wonder Project, Confirms Nintendo

In a recent turn of events, original Mario voice actor Charles Martinet has announced his decision to step back from voicing Nintendo characters. Nintendo has now confirmed that Martinet will not be taking part in the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Wonder project.

Although the identity of the new voice for Mario remains undisclosed, Nintendo has emphasized that Martinet's connection with the Mario universe will endure. He is set to take on a new role as a Mario Ambassador, ensuring that he continues to bring joy to Mario fans worldwide.

A representative from Nintendo expressed their thoughts on the matter: "While Charles won't be lending his voice to Super Mario Bros. Wonder, we're eagerly anticipating his future endeavors as a Mario Ambassador. The game credits will appropriately acknowledge the contributions of character voice actors, so we kindly ask for your patience until the game's release."

Super Mario Bros. Wonder Update

Earlier today, Nintendo revealed Martinet's departure from his long-standing role as the voice behind Nintendo characters, but they made no mention of his exclusion from Super Mario Bros. Wonder. Despite the bittersweet farewell to Martinet, who has lent his voice to Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, and more since 1991, Nintendo has assured the community that this isn't the final farewell.

In the coming days, fans can look forward to a special video message featuring Martinet and Shigeru Miyamoto, a gesture aimed at giving Martinet's iconic voice a proper send-off. Meanwhile, the highly anticipated Super Mario Bros. Wonder, the first fresh 2D Mario adventure in over a decade, is poised to launch on October 20, 2023, for the Nintendo Switch.

The game's standout feature is the introduction of Wonder Flowers, which promise to transform the world's appearance and dynamics. And yes, don't forget that Mario's new ability to transform into an Elephant adds an extra layer of excitement to this upcoming adventure.

Charles Martinet Mario's Voice Actor 

Since 1996, Martinet has been the unmistakable voice behind the beloved character, featuring prominently in various games like the Mario Kart and Mario Party series. While Martinet has become virtually inseparable from Mario's voice, the 2023 blockbuster movie took a different route.

Hollywood A-lister Pratt lent his voice to the iconic tradesman in this massively successful film. However, Martinet did contribute his vocal talents to the characters Giuseppe and Mario's father. Apart from his iconic role as Mario, Martinet lent his voice to a host of other characters in the Mario universe.

These include Mario's sibling Luigi, rivals Wario and Waluigi, and even the adorable baby versions of these characters. The year 2023 has been a pivotal one for the Mario series. The Mario movie achieved tremendous success, raking in more than $1 billion at the box office.

Moreover, fans can look forward to more Mario-related content on the horizon. Notably, the upcoming releases for the Switch include the highly anticipated Super Mario Bros. Wonder and a remake of the classic Super Mario RPG, both slated for release later this year. [no_toc]
