Mario invades Google Maps to help you avoid bananas while driving
You can only use Mario, of course (it's Mario Day, duh!) but this is a fun feature that you'll wish would stay with you every time you use Google Maps. The holiday takes place annually on March 10- aka MAR10 (get it?)-honoring everyone's favorite fictional plumber. It's perfectly simple: someone way back in the dusty ruins of time realized that "Mar 10" looks a little bit like "Mario" on paper, and thus that kinda made it Mario's unofficial birthday.
At the bottom of the screen, next to the Start button, you'll see a familiar yellow?-mark block.
According to a blog post by Munish Dabas, UX Engineer at Google Maps, an update rolling out today will bring Mario to Google Maps users on iOS and Android.
In case you weren't aware, tomorrow is National Mario Day. Today we're learning about where we'll see the plumber next, thanks to a new team up between Nintendo and Google Maps in celebration of Mario day.
To get started, you'll need to first update your app from Google Play or the App Store. Once you tap this, you'll be prompted with "Oh yeah!"
The Google Maps-Mario Kart mashup will be available until March 17. However, do be careful not to share any personal information you don't want others to see, such as your home address. Mario won't be there to rescue you from any insane stalkers. I'm just saying, Nintendo.
