Charles Martinet, Shigeru Miyamoto share joint video about new Mario voices, no explanation given for Charles' departure
Well...that was unsatisfying
Back when Nintendo announced that Charles Martinet was no longer going to be voicing Mario characters, they also noted that Charles and Shigeru Miyamoto would be appearing in a video that discussed the decision. Today, that video has been released and you can see it above.
The video focuses on Charles sharing his love and appreciation with fans, along with the fun times he had voicing Mario, Luigi and others. Miyamoto also talks about the many times he met Charles, some of the fond memories he has, and shares thanks with Charles for bringing Nintendo’s characters to life.
If you were hoping to get more insight into why Charles will no longer be voicing Mario and the others, you’re going to be disappointed. We get absolutely zero insight into the decision, leaving us to continue wondering why this is happening in the first place. Hopefully we get a bit more information sometime in the near future.
