Now ride with 'Mario' in Google Maps

Google-Celebrates-National-Mario-Day

Starting Saturday, Mario Time is an available feature when using Google Maps' navigation function on the latest iOS and Android app version. Mario is showing up in Maps for the festival of Mar10 Day and will stay accessible in the application for no less than seven days, as announced by MacRumors. March 10. Mario. Get it?

Nintendo collaborated with Google Maps to bring the world "Mario Mode", an optional feature that allows users to "navigate the world as Mario".

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

If you press it, your icon on Google Maps will turn into a Mario Kart avatar that will represent you on your journey. Once enabled, users would notice that the regular navigation arrow has morphed into Mario - the 1990s' video game character.

The Japanese game company is now working on "Mario Kart Tour", the first time the series will appear on smartphones.

Google has likewise urged clients to share screen captures of Mario in their Map via web-based networking media, so pay special mind to #MarioMaps in the event that you need to see the unavoidable screen captures of Mario going rough terrain when Maps fouls up, and ensure that you don't post individual points of interest on informal organizations. Tap on it and it will give you a prompt to enable Mario Time.

As a historical sidenote, Google and Nintendo have worked together before for these kinds of fun stunts. That partnership ultimately resulted in the birth of "Pokémon Go." By the "start navigation" button you'll find a question mark box as made famous by Mario's games. In the "Super Mario" games, these blocks dispense mushrooms and other useful items. Just be on the lookout for blue shells and banana peels.
