Later this month on 19th August, Netflix will premiere its new documentary series High Score. It will focus on the “the golden age of video games” – covering the brains behind the success, the games, and how the industry has evolved over the years.
Perhaps the most interesting part about it – at least for Nintendo fans, is the fact it’s being narrated by the one and only Charles Martinet (aka the voice of Super Mario). This has been discovered in the recent opening credits trailer uploaded by IGN. You can see Martinet’s name pop up at the 32-second mark:
Here’s the official description of High Score, courtesy of Netflix:
High Score is a documentary series about the golden age of video games, when legends – from Pac-Man to Doom – were brought to life. Through ingenuity and sheer force of will, computer pioneers and visionary artists from around the globe spawned the iconic worlds of Space Invaders, Final Fantasy, Street Fighter II, Mortal Kombat, Sonic the Hedgehog, MADDEN NFL, and beyond. Without rules or roadmaps, players and innovators alike pushed the limits of money to be made, rivals to be crushed, and hearts to be won. This is the story of the brains behind the pixels and how their unmatched innovation built a multi-billion dollar industry – almost by accident. High Score premieres on Netflix on August 19, 2020.
