Charles Martinet, the man who provides the voice of Nintendo’s Mario, says there’s a new Mario game on the way. Better still, it’s not one we already know about, like New Super Mario Bros. Wii or Super Mario Galaxy 2. As the little moustachioed podger himself would say, “Wahoo!”
There’s no news on whether it’s for the DS or Wii, but I’d wager Wii if there’s extensive voice-acting involved. Anyhow, Martinet teased the news on his Twitter feed, writing on October 10:
“Mama Mia!!!! I’m going to Seattle this week to record a new Mario game!”
He followed this over the weekend with:
“Awesome new Mario Game! And it’s not NSMB Wii, and it’s not Galaxy 2, but it’s going to be crazy fun!”
Two things to note here. One: I love how Charles Martinet is so damn dedicated to being Mario he even tweets as the plumber. And two: YAAAAAAAY!
