Nintendo: Race the voice of Mario!

Live in Australia or New Zealand? Want to get in on a bit of Mario Kart 7 racing action? What about if one of your fellow racers is Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario? Hmmm?

Now you can, with Nintendo Australia organising a special community event that will see Martinet joining a handful of Nintendo staff for a glorious hour of 3DS racing, next Monday night.

As a voice over actor, Charles has been the voice of the lovable plumber, Mario for Nintendo games, advertising, and events for nearly 20 years. He also does the voices of Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, and others for Nintendo games. This is your chance to test your Mario Kart 7 racing skills against the voice of Mario himself!

You’ll need a copy of Mario Kart 7, a 3DS (obviously), a broadband internet connection, and a little bit of free time between 6:30 and 7:30pm (Sydney time) next Monday, 19th of March.

To get yourself online, choose the “Mario Kart Channel” option in the main menu on your DS, and set up your online save files. Then pick “Online Multiplayer”, “Communities” and “Recommendations” before selecting “Nintendo AUS/NZ”.

…that’s the difficult way. The easy way: Just hit “Enter code” and type in 39-7327-4613-9024.
