Rack up another game showing for the San Diego Comic-Con. Nintendo is offering Comic-Con attendees the chance to meet Charles Martinet--the voice actor who spits out the mascot's lines in the Mario games--while they check out the company's display of games for its handheld. Among the games Nintendo will show off at the Comic-Con, taking place July 20-23, are Elite Beat Agents, Mario Hoops 3 on 3, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team, and Star Fox Command--all for the Nintendo DS. Nintendo is encouraging convention-goers to visit the company's booth dressed up as Nintendo characters to win prizes, which range from game systems to 8x10 postcards featuring Martinet, who will sign autographs.

The man behind the voice of Mario will highlight Nintendo's presence at the 2006 Comic-Con; DS game demos also part of the company's booth.

Want the latest news about Elite Beat Agents?
Mama mia, meeting the voice actor for mario would definately be sweet. I'd have him sign my Nintendo DS, if I could, and maybe sell it on EBay for alot of money. Heh, just kidding of course.
I live in AZ, I can't go. I wish I could because I am really looking forward to Elite Beat Agents. That's the game that's going to push me into buying a DS Lite.
Aw man, that subtitle is misleading. I thought it was a chance to meet Miyamoto. Oh well, it's sounds somewhat decent. I live in L.A., but I'll be there!
If I were to meet him, I'd ask him to record a phone message, probably with him cursing out Sonic or Sony, or something stupid and immature like that!
