Speaking in an interview with TGS, the voiceover for Mario, Charles Martinet, has said he wanted to voice Link in a Legend of Zelda game, but was refused by Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto.
“I spoke to Mr. Miyamoto and said: “I wanna be Link, I wanna be Link”, and Miyamoto told me that Link isn’t going to have a voice; he is going to stay the way he is,” said Martinet.
“Of course Mr. Miyamoto is always right! The way it works right now is the way it is supposed to be. It’s the genius of Miyamoto and he knows just the right formula for making his games more fun and more exciting. For example in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, If things slowed down for Mario to express his inner feelings it just wouldn’t work and this way it keeps our hearts pounding with enthusiasm.”
There you have it. Stick at Mario. Find the full interview through the link.

The voice actor for Mario, Charles Martinet, has tweeted that there is a new game in the works involving the plumber.
The first assumption would be it’s for Galaxy 2 or New Super Mario Bros Wii. But it turns out it’s a completely new game altogether, one not announced yet.
“Awesome new Mario Game! And it’s not NSMB Wii, and it’s not Galaxy 2, but it’s going to be crazy fun!”
Let the wild speculation begin as to what said game is.
Thanks, Gaming Target.
