Video game fans rejoice! FanExpo Dallas has announced their first gaming guest: the voice of Mario himself, Charles Martinet.
Charles Martinet is an American actor and voice actor, best known for voicing Mario in the Super Mario video game series. He has been the man behind the title character of Nintendo’s flagship franchise since 1990, but has also voiced other series characters, including Baby Mario, Luigi, Baby Luigi, Wario, Waluigi and Toadsworth. The man is truly the voice of the Mario universe!
For FanExpo Dallas, Martinet is set to appear Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You will be able to get photo ops with Martinet at his table for $40, autographs for $40, or if you want both, you can get them at a discounted rate of $70. The convention has not yet announced any panels that will feature Martinet, but there is no doubt that over three days fans will have plenty of opportunities to see the star in action.
The convention faced delays and ultimately cancellation in 2020 and is now set to take place September 17 through 19. Charles Martinert joins Christopher Sabat, Dave Bautista, William Shatner, George Takei, and the four hobbits (Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Dominic Monaghan, and Billy Boyd) as celebrity guest for the event. If these names don’t quite hit the spot for you, don’t worry, as we can still expect more guest announcements over the coming months.
