Charles Martinet (the voice of Mario) recently teased about doing a voice recording gig in Seattle for a new Mario title. He says that it's not for New Super Mario Bros. Wii or Mario Galaxy 2.


I hope it's not another Mario Party or Mario Sports title though.


Here's what he said on Twitter about it:


- Mama Mia!!!! I'm going to Seattle this week to record a new Mario game! Woo Hooo!!!!! I can hardly wait!!!!1

- Big day tomorrow! Seattle for a new Mario game! Yippee!!! And just as a joke, it's going to rain....in San Francisco tomorrow!

- Awesome new Mario Game! And it's not NSMB Wii, and it's not Galaxy 2, but it's going to be crazy fun!

Shigeru Miyamoto's Twitter is hinting at something too. He mentioned Squareenix in it. I'm guessing the game is Super Mario RPG 2 with Geno returning.

Seems so. The thing with the Weltkindertag for example is true. I wonder why someone would fake such messages. Who would look up all those dates?

I wonder if the game is going to be something like New Super Mario Bros. 2 or 3 for DS.

Nintendo would be crazy not to release a new one for the DS given how much the first game has sold.

Mario RPG 2 from Square Enix would be freaking sweet. :D

It's Mario Golf Wii actually.

About time they got one out...
This is it! The 33 people at Camelot are developing both Golden Sun DS and Mario Golf Wii. Aren't they also working on an Pokemon MMORPG for Wii as well as World of Zelda (another MMORPG)?

So how long befor dev's start to ban staff from Twitter
Knowning Nintendo, I'm shoked the twitter account is still up now.


Also I wonder if this is anyway related to that secret game IGN saw or that Super Mario Collection trademark.

Interesting. I forgot about IGN's comment on that new game they'll be getting to play from Nintendo.

I would think they just reuse the sound they have from the first game. Don't see any benefits from recording new.
Core market wonders why you're cheaping out, especially if there's a fanbase for the actors and they're paid per recording rather that royalties. A looooot of licenced Japanese stuff rerecords even basic reused lines.
It also helps keep consistency between near-simultaneous releases over the years as an actor's voice subtly changes. You could definitely make a new Mario game using only Martinet clips from SM64, but it'd sound really weird a few months later when they go back to the well for Mario Curling and need to rerecord for particular terminology. And of course, mixing new and old in a single game is right out.

A new Paper Mario game would be the most favorable outcome for me.
I haven't played SPM, but was there any recorded dialogue in TTYD? I can't remember any, but I only played through it once, at release. Actually, I guess I do remember some various sound effects. Actually, after more thought, I guess Mario really doesn't speak much beyond that.

I'd love a new real Paper Mario game though.
