It's Mario time on Google Maps!

It's Mario time on Google Maps!

With Mario Day set for March 10 (because Mar10 spells "Mario"), there are many ways to celebrate your favourite character from Nintendo's line up. 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.

But then on Thursday, YouTube host and streamer Trisha Hershberger was among the first to receive a notification in Google Maps that she could "navigate [her] world as Mario to celebrate Mario Day on March 10th".

Once Google Maps is updated and a destination is entered, click on the question box to engage the Mario Kart mode.

Mark Cuban On Resurfaced Sexual Assault Claim: "It Didn't Happen"
Ultimately, the Multnomah County District Attorney declined to press charges citing insufficient evidence. Through an attorney, Cuban strongly denied the allegations in a statement to the Willamette Week .

Nintendo also teamed up with Google in 2014 to hid Pokemon among Maps, a moved that in hindsight looks like a precursor to Pokemon Go.

Once enabled, you'll see that the navigation arrow has morphed into-who else?-Mario. - Mario. He'll be a constant companion wherever you're driving this week - to work, to school, or the spaghetti house. Google suggests that you avoid throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers on the road.

"Mario Time" will be available in the Google Maps app for both iOS and Android starting today and will stick around for a week. What do you guys think about seeing Mario and his Kart on Google Maps? With it installed, you'll be presented with a? block icon next to the Start button when looking up directions.
