Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario, has been romping around the London Eurogamer Expo this afternoon

Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario.

Following a stint on the PA system, Martinet, lead by EGTV's Johnny Minkley, roamed the vast Old Billingsgate venue.

"Hello, it's-a me, it's-a Mario," said Martinet, in the voice, unaware this was going to be transcribed. "Wahoo!"

"I'm a down here at the Eurogamer Expo 2009 having-a super-duper fun with my friend Johnny. You guys should all come down and say hello. Wahoo!"

Martinet has worked for Nintendo since 1987. He also voices Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi and Baby Wario.

Look out for the full Eurogamer Expo 2009 EGTV Show soon.
