Mario isn't exactly the type for interviews--he's usually too busy running through candy-colored mushroom worlds--but now he has some quality time lined up to tell his story in a four-part video podcast. In all truth it's just a whimsical way to see some development details of New Super Mario Bros
, but I have to give Nintendo points for creativity. Charles Martinet, the voice talent behind the pint-sized hero, is always a cut-up at E3 and other gaming events, so it'll be interesting to see how he handles this job. I just hope it's better than G4's abysmal Mario appearance, when they gave him their first "Icons" award. Big whoop.
You've helped him run far, jump high, drive like a maniac and
participate in more sports than you can remember. But now it's time to get
personal. For the first time, the most popular video game character in
the world, Mario, sits down for a one-on-one video podcast interview to
discuss his new game, New Super Mario Bros. for Nintendo DS. Mario's
exclusive interview is one of a series of four episodes designed to give
viewers the inside look at some of Nintendo's biggest superstars.
Between May 22 and June 12, each week a new video episode will be
