The video game company Nintendo announces surprising changes and will no longer have the original Super Mario.

A long-standing era is coming to a close: Charles Martinet, the iconic voice behind the beloved video game character Super Mario, is stepping back from his iconic role. Nintendo has surprised fans by announcing that Martinet will no longer be the voice of Mario, Luigi, Wario and other characters in the Nintendo universe. However, this does not mean that he will walk away from the company completely, as he will assume a new role as “Mario’s Ambassador” around the world. The news has left fans of the game in awe, and the change will soon be apparent as Martinet will not be voicing him in the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Wonder, arriving on October 20.

Official Nintendo Announcement: “Charles Martinet has been the original voice of Mario in Nintendo games for a long time, dating back to Super Mario 64. Charles is now taking on the new role of Mario Ambassador. With this transition, he will stop recording character voices for our games, but he will continue to travel the world sharing the joy of Mario and interacting with all of you!”

“It has been an honor to work with Charles to help bring Mario to life for so many years and we want to thank him and celebrate him. Please be on the lookout for a special video message from Shigeru Miyamoto and Chalres himself, which we will post at a future date.”

Social networks were flooded with messages of good wishes for Martinet, as well as surprise at this unexpected announcement.

The actor has been collaborating with Nintendo since 1991, when he began voicing the character at trade shows, before becoming the definitive voice of Mario in video games. Martinet made his debut as the voice of Mario in games like Mario Teaches Typing and Mario’s Game Gallery, but it was his performance in Super Mario 64 in 1996 that really cemented his popularity among fans.

Although the news has left many speechless, it is not the first time that a change in Mario’s voice has been experienced. Just a few months ago, Chris Pratt took over the role of Mario in the movie that hit theaters. Although Martinet did not voice the character in the film, he played the role of Mario’s father, playing a pivotal role in the plot. Additionally, Martinet also brought to life a supporting character named Giuseppe, based on Mario’s original Jumpman appearance in the classic arcade game Donkey Kong.

Martinet’s legacy as the distinctive voice of Super Mario is undeniable, and his new role as “Mario Ambassador” ensures that his contribution to the franchise will continue to be appreciated by fans around the world. Although there will be a change in the voice we hear in upcoming games, Martinet’s impact on the gaming world is undeniable and will linger in gamers’ memories for many years to come.
