Google Maps Will Let You Drive Around as Video Game Star Mario For a Week

Google is celebrating Mario Day on Mar 10 by letting we expostulate around town as a iconic Nintendo video diversion character.

“Mario Time” will be accessible in a Google Maps app for both iOS and Android starting currently and will hang around for a week. When we launch a latest chronicle of a app you’ll see a prompt seeking if you’d like to “Navigate a universe as Mario.” If we contend yes, Mario will turn your position pen in a app.

The underline is activated during a week by drumming on a “?” idol beside a “start” symbol we typically press to start navigation.

Mario isn’t a initial video diversion impression to turn a pen in a app. Last year Google done a position pen Ms. PacMan for Apr Fools Day, and in 2015, a pen was altered to a TIE figure or X-Wing for a recover of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Just like aged video games, a Mario underline also has a dark easter egg. If we fasten that “?” 100 times, you’ll hear a 1-UP sound, a curtsy to a iconic game.

March 10 is famous as “Mario Day” since the date can be created MAR10, that looks as yet it reads “Mario.”
