    This is the best summary I could come up with:

    After months of speculation, conspiracy theories, and false alarms, we finally know the name of Mario’s new voice actor: Kevin Afghani.

    On Friday, Afghani announced the news on X (formerly Twitter), saying, “Incredibly proud to have voiced Mario and Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Wonder.

    Nintendo confirmed the news in an email, saying simply, “The voice actor’s name is Kevin Afghani.” The news comes after iconic voice actor Charles Martinet stepped away from the role in August to become a Mario ambassador.

    Afghani’s IMDB page is relatively sparse, with six credits and no stand-out roles.

    He played Raditz in the Dragon Ball R&R series, voiced Arnold in Genshin Impact, and did a voice in a show hilariously titled Anime Penguin: Red Snow.

    Super Mario Bros. Wonder launches on the Nintendo Switch on October 20th.
