it's only reasonable to blame Chris Pratt

(somberly): oof

So long, Gay Charles. ;_;

now charles martinet will just be a “mario ambassador”

does that mean hes marios agent or something now?

or is the title just like, an honorary thing

@“Emily”#p129526 I think it means he will be Mario's physical form and when he dies Nintendo will kill Mario for real this time (not like in 2021)

If Chris becomes the official voice of Mario I will turn off my switch forever and buy a mister.

If Pratt becomes video game Mario then that means Charlie Day becomes video game Luigi, and they‘ll have to cast Wario next. But more likely it’ll be a Mickey Mouse situation and there'll be a casting call for their Jimmy MacDonald.

@“穴”#p129527 Yes, he's the Mario Host. In a century or two, mario will reincarnate and find another. It is only natural.

Don’t worry, I already plan to ask the panel this

Mario Ambassador means Charles Martinet can now play a select number of GBA games on his Nintendo 3DS

Martinet did great work but it was too kid-focused, and nintendo needs to appeal to its current market of 38 year old grown men who pay $70 to play mario on the switch

@“yeso”#p129536 the new Mario is Andrew Huberman

instead of saying “mama mia” in an italiano accent the new guy is gonna say “mommy uwu :point_right::point_left:

this is a true fact

@“yeso”#p129536 as a 43 year old man, I'm only willing to pay $60 to play mario on the switch. $70 is right out!

i have a bit of a side gossip/hearsay to throw here

It is said that the common welcome for foreign game industry personalities on "Brasil Game Show" (BGS) is

to take them to brazillian brothels and such. I can't reveal names for a number of reasons but if you do the math you can figure it out

Charles Martinet is one of the most recurring appearances on BGS

Someone trolled Kojima on a BGS into making the handsign of one of the most famous organized crime cartel from Rio de Janeiro

This seems kinda strange and sudden? I would’ve assumed playing Mario is one of the easiest and most lucrative voice acting paychecks in the world (voice actors or voice-acting-adjacent people feel free to correct me) so it’s hard to imagine Martinet just up and deciding he’d had enough unless there was some extenuating circumstance. So I’d guess he either has some kind of health/vocal complication or this is Nintendo’s decision because they want to take the brand in a new direction following the movie.

@"tomjonjon"#p129543 You say that now, but when everyone’s buzzing about _Super Mario Googolplex_ on the Switch 2: Dual-Screen Boogaloo you know you’ll cave…

@“2501”#p129546 Only if IGN gives it a perfect score :wink:
