It's-a me!

Charles Martinet — who has given Mario his voice since 1995 — will attend a special Mario-themed event at the Oxford Street branch of John Lewis on September 7th.

The event — which takes place from 9.30am to 8pm on Saturday 7th September and 12.30pm to 6pm on Sunday 8th September — will also feature hourly Mario Kart 7 competitions as well as Wii U and 3DS demo pods showcasing some of the Italian plumber's most recent adventures.

Martinet — who also lends his vocal talents to Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi — will be available on the Saturday for autograph and photo opportunities between 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm.
