For those who grew up on Super Mario or those who've just discovered the joys of playing the game in whatever format, Nintendo and Google have a surprise treat for you if you use Google Maps to navigate your way around your city. "To get to Mario Time, tap on the yellow "?" symbol that is accessible in the base right of the Google Maps application in the wake of updating the application to the most recent version. If you say yes, then your navigation arrow will turn into Super Mario in his go kart. In order to make this happen, Google Maps has introduced a new feature that will let drivers swap the traditional navigation arrow with Mario and your ride with Mario begins.

"Mario Mode" will be available for a week, according to Nintendo.

Google has announced that it has partnered with Nintendo to bring Mario to Google Maps.

Saturday was March 10, which is Mario's birthday, a neatly reverse-engineered fact to make the most of the fact that MAR10 looks similar to Mario, in a Mario Kart number plate type way. And even as they encourage you to share a screenshot of your route with Mario, they also caution about having any personal details like your home address on the image that you will share with the hashtag #MarioMaps.

The Japanese game company is now working on "Mario Kart Tour", the first time the series will appear on smartphones. Next to the "Start" button, where will be a '?' icon in the shape of the '? block' from the Mario series of video games.

Just watch out for Blue Shells out there.
