Mario voice actor Charles Martinet is the narrator in Runner2

It’s no secret that I’ve raved about Bit.Trip presents Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien but one detail I couldn’t share with you has now been announced. The voice of Mario, Charles Martinet, is the announcer for the upcoming game from Gaijin Games.

Players will get accustomed to his voice within minutes as he introduces fake advertisements in the game. Just before the title screen, he announces his own name and presents the game to everyone with a glorious voice-over. Very akin to 50s style advertisments or Animaniacs. He’ll also be narrating the cutscenes that play out before each world. It’s pretty wonderful to hear and I cannot wait for you guys to hear his voice.
