Mario is as recognizable of a voice as you have heard in any video game. For a long time, Charles Martinet provided that iconic voice and more, but now that he is a Mario Ambassador, it is time for someone new to step in. Who do these voices belong to, and have you heard them before? Here is what we know about the new voices for Mario and Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
Who voices Mario and Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Wonder?
The new voice of Mario and Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Wonder belongs to a voice actor named Kevin Afghani. From our quick searches into his background, it seems he is a relatively newcomer when it comes to voice actors. His IMDb page shows just a few previous roles, including Genshin Impact and some videos. You can learn a little more about him from the bio on his website. The tweet below only mentions Nintendo bringing him on for the Flower Kingdom setting in Super Mario Bros. Wonder, so it is unknown at this moment if he will be the sole voice of the famous plumbers going forward or if Nintendo will swap more names in.
When Super Mario Bros. Wonder was first revealed, some people noticed that Mario’s usual sounds when moving around were slightly different. This was a precursor to the news that Charles Martinet was stepping down from the role after nearly 30 years. Just listening to the trailer, it seems Nintendo found a good replacement for Martinet’s long-time position.
No one can ever fill the joy and happiness he brought to so many people, but the new voice seems to be doing well. It’s not like Mario and Luigi are necessarily difficult voices to emulate. Countless fans have been doing this for decades. Regardless, we are ready to hear more from new people who voice Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, and more.
