    Default Charles Martinet Will Now Serve as the Official Mario Ambassador

    REDMOND, Wash. — Nintendo of America confirmed Monday that [Charles] 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.

    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.

    In a question and answer session at a Canadian gaming and comics expo two years ago, Martinet told the audience "I want to voice Mario until I drop dead" in response to a fan's question, according to gaming blog The Game Crater. But he added "if someday I think I am no longer capable of doing it, I will tell Nintendo to look into finding someone else."

    Captain Louie > Charles Martini.

    CL Mario from the TV series made more sense and was dignifying.
    CM literally sounds like somebody kicked CL between the legs.
    Yes I will admit I have the sad luxary of running into ( most likely ) Italian person(s) who fits the CM.
    Honestly he is no "Super Mario". It was fun with that one game "Mario 64" but beyond that even
    "Wario World" was more fun. There is a stereotype and then their is just pure insults.

    He gets to retire and fly around promoting Nintendo. Good for him, but again I do not know this person and have no idea of the kind of life he actually was living at all.
