Now I'm even more confused
Back on August 21st, it was revealed that Charles Martinet would no longer be voicing any Mario characters for Nintendo. The man who brought characters like Mario, Luigi, Wario and more for decades is now transitioning into a new role, but in a recent interview with the man himself, it appears Martinet has no clue what he’ll actually be doing.
Charles Martinet was part of a panel at GalaxyCon Austin 2023 recently, and not surprisingly, Martinet brought up the topic of moving away from Mario. Unfortunately, we still don’t have an answer as to why Martinet is stepping down from the role, and even more confusing, he’s not quite sure what he’ll be doing next.
Martinet mentioned that he’s now going to be a Mario Ambassador for Nintendo, but he has no idea what that actually entails. Martinet does seem to be happy about being included in Mario’s future this way, but he has nothing to share on what the position requires of him. Just like the fans, Martinet says he’ll find out what a Mario Ambassador’s duties are as time roles on.
