Mario Drifting Into Google Maps For Mario Day


March 10 is Mario Day. Get it? Because it’s Mar10. To
celebrate the occasion, Google and Nintendo are putting Mario on the map – literally.

On the Google Maps app for Android
and iOS,
users on Mario Day can activate Mario Time, which makes a yellow question mark
appear next to locales. Tapping on the marker makes Mario (in a kart, naturally) pop up on
the map to take you to the destination. Google has yet to say if alleged best
friends will toss a last-second blue shell at you just before you arrive.

Google and Nintendo teamed up in 2016 for a similar
event to celebrate the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
, in
which Link acted as the navigator.
