We finally have confirmation, after months of speculation! In a statement to GameInformer, Nintendo has confirmed that Mario and Luigi’s new voice actor is Kevin Afghani.
The LA-based voice actor has had fairly minor roles up until this point, with his biggest until this point arguably being Arnold in Genshin Impact. Now he’ll be at the forefront of one of the biggest gaming franchises on the planet – no pressure!
Kevin also shared his own statement on X – check it out!
Incredibly proud to have voiced Mario and Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. Thanks to Nintendo for inviting me into the Flower Kingdom!
