Voice Actor of Nintendo’s Mario Character to Retire

Charles Martinet, the original voice of Mario in Nintendo games since the 1990s, is leaving the Mushroom Kingdom.

Nintendo of America confirmed Monday that Martinet will now serve in the role of “Mario Ambassador,” traveling around the world to promote the beloved plumber, signing autographs, and performing Nintendo character voices.

“It’s been a privilege working with Charles to help bring Mario to life for so many years and we want to thank and celebrate him,” Nintendo said in a statement.

Actor Charles Martinet, the voice of Nintendo Co.’s Mario, stands for a photograph with Mario during the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, California, U.S., on Tuesday, June 13, 2017.

In addition to being the original voice of Mario, he’s also voiced Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi in the video games. While he did not voice Mario in the recent movie, he did have a small role as Mario’s dad.
