Mario invades Google Maps to help you avoid bananas while driving
To celebrate MAR10 Day (ie March 10), Nintendo arranged a collaboration with Google Maps so that people looking to use Maps as a Global Positioning System can show Mario in his go-kart instead of the usual blue arrow.
To activate Mario Time, enter a destination and request directions in Google Maps. Clearly, Google was preparing a Mario-related announcement for the coming days.
The mustachioed plumber will also make an appearance in Google Maps' navigation, if the users opt in to have Mario to accompany them on the journey. It will be available for a full week, says Google. Just upgrade to the latest version of Google Maps, and the blue navigation arrow can be replaced with Mario.
The new Mario comes as Mario Time for Google Maps for Android and iOS devices.
The news was officially shared by Google through their Google Maps official Twitter handle and you would be able to update the Google Maps app by now.
Google has also included a hidden Easter egg in Mario Time: tapping the yellow question mark icon 100 times will trigger the familiar 1-UP sound of Nintendo's Games. You can see have Mario drive around while following the route.
