Nintendo has revealed that the new voice actor for the jumping man himself, Mario Mario, is Kevin Afghani. The voice actor confirmed this fact himself via a Twitter post. He is also the new voice for Luigi, at least in Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
Afghani said the following:
“Incredibly proud to have voiced Mario and Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. Thanks to Nintendo for inviting me into the Flower Kingdom!”
Afghani is known as the English voice of Arnold from Genshin Impact, Raditz from Dragon Ball R&R, and more. Fans will get to hear Kevin Afghani as Mario in the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
It’s nice to finally see clarification on Mario’s new voice actor since there has been quite a bit of speculation, especially after the game leaked and fans were trying to piece together who the voice actor was based on that.
In Super Mario Bros. Wonder, Prince Florian invited Mario and his friends to the Flower Kingdom. However, when Bowser attacks and comes into contact with the Wonder Flower, he merges with the prince’s castle. Of course, the heroes set off on a quest to halt Bowser’s ambitions.
The game has six worlds that circle the petal isles, with a total of 7 areas to explore. There will be several types of environments throughout the levels, such as caves, deserts, and grasslands.
Luigi, Peach, Daisy, two Toads, and Toadette are also playable alongside Mario, and they all control the same. The Yoshi and Nabbit won’t take damage, though, so they’re for beginners. But they can still lose lives if they fall into a pit.
Players can experience stages with new power-ups, badges, and the Wonder Flower that significantly alters the layout of the environment. Four-player local play will also be featured alongside indirect online player interaction.
Super Mario Bros. Wonder will launch for Nintendo Switch on October 20, 2023. Fans can now pre-order the game via the Switch eShop.
