Charles Martinet, Voice of Mario, Lands Guinness World Record

This record is for the most recorded video game voice-overs for a single character. He won the award after voicing Mario in the Super Mash Bros. Ultimate game that recently launched. With that game’s release, Martinet has voiced Mario in over 100 titles.

Mario isn’t the only character that Martinet has voiced in the Super Mario Bros. world. He is also the voice of Wario, Luigi, Waluigi, and the baby versions of Mario and Luigi.
