  • Mario Kart Google Maps Easter Egg Will Guide You For Mario Day

"If you feel like having some extra fun or have some spare time, you can tap on the iconic "?" box 100 times, and you will hear the classic 1-UP sound from Mario games.

The event starts on March 10th, "Mario Day" (Mar. 10th, Mar-10, get it?).

The feature, which Google announced this morning, is available in the latest update in the Google Maps app on both iOS and Android. Google Maps users will be able to navigate through their day, not as just a simple dot on the map, but as Nintendo's own Mario driving along in his famous go-kart, as Google details on its blog.
