IGN recently caught up with Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser and asked about the recent decision to make Charles Martinet a Mario Ambassador.
Recently, it was announced that Martinet won’t be voicing characters for Nintendo’s games going forward. He previously held the role for Mario and others for a few decades. But now as Mario Ambassador, Martinet will ” continue to travel the world sharing the joy of Mario and interacting” with fans.
Bowser had this to say when asked about the decision to make Martinet Mario Ambassdor:
“Ah, yes. Well, Charles has obviously been a voice actor with us for quite some time, and as we look for ways to keep Charles involved in Nintendo’s business, we thought this was a very nice transition for him. And Charles is very excited about it. I’ll let Charles speak to it himself if he’d like to, but we look forward to having him continue to represent Nintendo and importantly the Mushroom Kingdom as we go forward. I think people have recognized this when they see Super Mario Bros. Wonder, they’ll hear a different voice and we’ll let that play out and that’ll be within the credits, and people will learn who the new person is at that point in time, but we don’t plan to make any announcement in advance of that.”
