Google Celebrates National Mario Day by Letting You Ride with Mario in Maps

Mario comes to Google Maps

A partnership between Google and Nintendo has brought loved gaming character Mario to Google Maps, to help you find your way all this week and celebrate Super Mario Day. Mario is showing up in Maps for the festival of Mar10 Day and will stay accessible in the application for no less than seven days, as announced by MacRumors.

Munish Dabas, UX Engineer, Google Maps stated in the company's official blog, "We know a true Mario fan when we see one". On March 10, which has been dubbed "Mario Day", Google chose to give users the chance to be guided by Super Mario himself. So wherever you go this week, he'll be with you and he'll even be cheering you on with some fist pumping as you drive wherever your destination may be.




Click on the yellow ? icon found on the bottom right of Google Maps app on Android or iOS. Drivers using Maps have the option to swap the traditional navigation arrow with Mario on his kart. You will need to update your app in order to access this feature, but doing so should trigger a prompt that requests permission to replace the standard tracker with Mario.

It's not the first time Google and Nintendo have teamed up for amusing stunts. So, this entire week, sit back and let Mario guide you through roads and find shops and restaurants. Granted, that's all speculative, but most Nintendo mobile games do change the formula of the original titles somewhat to accommodate mobile features.
