Nintendo has confirmed that Mario’s new voice actor will be revealed in the credits for Super Mario Bros. Wonder and there will be no special announcements before this release.

Speaking to IGN at Nintendo Live 2023, Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser confirmed that there will be no name reveal until the game launches and also mentioned how there will be no official announcement before then. Here’s exactly what he had to say:

“We’ll let that happen and it will be in the credits, and people will know who the new person is at that time, but we don’t plan to make any advance announcement about that.”

A previous statement from Nintendo asked fans to “please wait until the game is released” to learn about new voice actors for “Mario and/or Luigi.”

Doug Bowser also mentioned how Charles was seemingly “very excited” about his new role and how Nintendo is looking forward to “continuing to represent” the Mushroom Kingdom as Mario moves forward.

Unfortunately, Martinet doesn’t seem to fully understand the new ambassador’s role himself – as he recently mentioned at a conference that he’s not quite sure what it will involve just yet, and claimed that he will be learning it alongside the fans.
