Google Maps Adds Mario as Navigator to Celebrate Mario Day

Google Maps Adds Mario as Navigator to Celebrate Mario Day”

Just do not forget to practice safe driving on the road-we don't encourage throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers in real life! Because Google Maps will be transforming into a real-life (though much safer) version of Mario Kart, because they're going to let Super Mario guide us on our way.

National Mario Day is observed each year on 10 March and honors Mario from the popular Nintendo game.

Go to the yellow question mark available at the bottom corner of your Google Maps Screen, and you will be in for a wonderful surprise.

To celebrate its iconic mascot Mario "and his many awesome fans" around the world, Nintendo has announced that it has teamed up with Google to bring its beloved character to Google Maps. You can go to the respective stores to download and update the Google Maps with Mario Time. If there is one game that was immensley popular and played by nearly everyone is Super Mario.

"So, now when you pull up driving directions on Maps, a new grey "?" logo should appear next to the "Start" button.

Everyone's favorite plumber (and yes, he's a plumber again) can be activated by opening Google Maps and hitting the 8-bit question block icon, which prompts a pop up asking if commuters want to activate Mario mode.

If you don't see the update or the icon immediately, it might be taking a bit of time for Google to roll out.

That's a name you've undoubtedly heard, whether you're a major Nintendo fanboy or someone who doesn't care much for video games in general. Well, It's March 10th, or, in other words, Mar10.

Google has in the past did similar fun-filled things Google Maps making it interactive for users.

This something special will come in the form of Mario Kart racing onto Google Maps, where users will be able to drive around as Mario.
