Last week, Charles Martinet - the voice actor of Mario and many other virtual characters - was awarded a certificate by the Guinness World Records for the most video game voiceover performances as the same character. Following the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Switch, he's now voiced Mario 100 times.
In celebration of the record, GWR uploaded a video to its YouTube channel featuring Charles. In the clip, Martinet discusses how he got the gig as Mario in the first place, his lengthy career, his genuine love of the Mario games and even offers some sound life advice. He thinks Mario fans are the greatest fans in the world and also mentions how he thought Super Mario Odyssey was a "magical" game when he saw it for the first time. Martinet doesn't think voicing Mario will ever get old and apparently wants to do it until he is 147 years of age. Take a look at the full video below:
Once again, congratulations to Charles for reaching this career milestone.
