Charles Martinet, Original Voice Of Mario Steps Down From Official Role

One of the inhabitants of Mushroom Kingdom with the longest stay will shortly leave.

After nearly 30 years, Nintendo’s famed plumber Mario’s voice actor Charles Martinet announced that he will be leaving the position. Instead, Martinet will serve as a Mario ambassador, “sharing the joy of Mario” at foreign gatherings, according to Nintendo.

“It has been an honor working with Charles to help bring Mario to life for so many years and we want to thank and celebrate him,” Nintendo said in Monday’s announcement. The company noted that Nintendo executive and Mario designer Shigeru Miyamoto will soon join Martinet for a “special video message.”

Martinet provided the mustachioed protagonist’s voice in dozens of wildly successful video games, including the ground-breaking “Super Mario 64” in 1996, the smash-hit “Mario Kart Wii” in 2008, and the upcoming “Mario Party Superstars” in 2021. Along with his red hat and mustache, Mario’s emphasized falsetto has come to symbolize the character, making him instantly recognizable around the globe.

Martinet’s probable replacement has not been made publically known by Nintendo. Martinet has been contacted by CNN for comment.

In a quick post on X, formerly known as Twitter, the voice actor expressed gratitude to his fans for their support throughout the years.

“My new Adventure begins!” he wrote in a Mario-esque post. “You are all Numba One in my heart! #woohoo !!!!!!!”
