Mario’s new voice actor has been revealed

October 13, 2023 by No Comments

Mario’s (and Luigi’s) voice actor – the actor himself – was revealed in a tweet posted a few minutes ago. In a brief but sweet announcement, Kevin Afghani has confirmed that he will be responsible for the voice talents of both Mario and Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Wonder, which releases next week on October 20th.

Afghani only has a handful of acting credits — one of which is a notable role in Genshin Impact — but fans familiar with his work have already spoken positively about the news.

A new era

Earlier this year, Charles Martinet stepped away from voicing iconic characters such as Mario, Wario and Waluigi after nearly thirty years. Instead, he took on the role of ‘brand ambassador’ for Nintendo, a role with a purpose he didn’t fully understand.
