Meet Mario in San Diego

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.


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.
