Munish Dabas, User Experience Engineer at Google Maps, recently said in a blog post that Google has collaborated with the Japanese video game maker, Nintendo which is also the creators of the Mario game to bring Mario to Google Maps and accompany all users for their driving adventures using the app for one week. 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.
It's in honour of March 10th, or "Mario Day". The Google Map app just needs to be updated to the latest version on any device. If you say yes, then your navigation arrow will turn into Super Mario in his go kart. On March 10, which has been dubbed "Mario Day", Google made a decision to give users the chance to be guided by Super Mario himself.
Meanwhile, we imagine that Android fans are just happy to see this collaboration as it might mean they won't have to wait for months to get a copy of Mario Kart Tour on their devices. Tap on it and it will give you a prompt to enable Mario Time.
Starting today, Google Maps users can unlock the feature by clicking the question mark box at the bottom right corner of the Directions screen.
It's not the first time Google and Nintendo have teamed up for amusing stunts. Next to the "Start" button, where will be a '?' icon in the shape of the '? block' from the Mario series of video games. So, this entire week, sit back and let Mario guide you through roads and find shops and restaurants.
