Mario Becomes Your Navigator On Google Maps For Mario Day

Google-Celebrates-National-Mario-Day

On March 10, which has been dubbed "Mario Day", Google chose to give users the chance to be guided by Super Mario himself.

All things considered, this isn't the first run through Google Maps has been updated to get highlighted with stunning characters.

And in honor of Nintendo's beloved and iconic character, Nintendo has partnered with Google and added a feature to navigate the mean streets as Mario in Mario Kart.

Disease X' Added to the WHO R&D Blueprint List
However, it also warned that these pathogens still pose a serious risk to public health, and should be "watched carefully". This disease could also be hatched by big events like a terrorist act, or smaller incidences like auto accidents.

Maybe knowing the strategies of your regular Mario Kart player, Google has likewise issued a notice: "Just do not forget to practice safe driving on the road-we don't encourage throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers in real life!" Next to the "Start" button, where will be a '?' icon in the shape of the '? block' from the Mario series of video games. Happily, the easter egg is not geo-restricted, so users in Malaysia can navigate to their next destination on Google Maps with the "Let's Go!" quip by the plumber. The option to switch to Mario will be available to drivers for a week. We can only hope there isn't some hidden blue shell waiting to knock you off your navigational path. Tap on it and it will give you a prompt to enable Mario Time.

Engineer at Google Maps, said in a blog post that the company has collaborated with the team at Japanese video game company Nintendo "to let Mario accompany you on all of your driving adventures on Google Maps this week".
