For 25 years now, Charles Martinet has been the voice of Mario. Starting with Mario's Game Gallery released on the PC in '95 and continuing on to the preset time with the newly released Smash Bros Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch. Collectively in total, Martinet has been the voice of Mario 100 times.
And according to the people over at the Guinness Book of World Records, that is a record. Officially announced December 7th, Charles Martinet now holds the record for "most times that one actor has performed the voice of the same character in a video game".
Fun fact about Mr. Martinet, he also does the voices for Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi. But his most iconic character is of course, Mario.
A few years ago at Wizard World Columbus, Spanish, Verlane, and Link got to talk to the man himself. You can watch that conversation below.
I personally have meet him a few times at various different conventions, and I will say, he is an amazing person to talk too and he really loves what he does.
From us at Game Fix. Congrats Mr. Martinet!
This is James with Game Fix. Game on everybody!
