Google maps has been known to host easter eggs before. This one however is super cool if you love Mario Kart. In celebration of MAR10 being the official Mario Day for the Nintendo’s beloved Character, Google will allow its users to be guided by Nintendo’s Mario. A new update for Google Maps on iOS and Android is in the process of rolling out. With it installed, you’ll be presented with a ? block icon next to the Start button when looking up directions. Tap that, and the navigation arrow is replaced with Mario riding around in a vehicle from Mario Kart.
We know a true Mario fan when we see one. They hum the Super Mario Bros. background music on repeat, daydream about collecting gold coins and 1-UP mushrooms, and want nothing more than to traverse the Mushroom Kingdom with Luigi, Toad, and Yoshi to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser. To celebrate our favorite mustachioed plumber-turned-racer on his special day—MAR10 Day—we’ve collaborated with the team at Nintendo to let Mario accompany you on all of your driving adventures on Google Maps this week.
Will you be using this on your Google Maps? Let us know if this has got you excited!
