Navigate Google Maps as Super Mario in A New Update

Mario can guide you around town in Google Maps as part of the Mario Day celebrations Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some

After teasing the feature on Twitter, with the use of four banana emoji and a red auto, Google has begun rolling a Mario Kart Easter Egg to the Google Maps app on iOS and Android.

This week on Twitter, Google started teasing a new event for Maps which clearly hinted at something related to Mario Kart, with the bananas from the game littering the streets of a Streetview.

Once you tap "Let's-a-go!" your position within turn-by-turn navigation will be represented by Mario. "He'll be a constant companion wherever you're driving this week-to work, to school, or the spaghetti house".

If it doesn't show up for you, don't fret - it will be rolling out globally over the day. Google says that this Mario integration will be available for one week, so you will have plenty of time to get motorin' with gaming's favorite plumber (sorry, Luigi).

If you don't see the update or the icon immediately, it might be taking a bit of time for Google to roll out.

You can find the frame in Messenger by opening the Messenger app, take a photo and then tap the smiley face icon.

Then the plumber-turned-hero follows along as you move, marking your destination along the map as you close in.

As part of the working relationship with Starlight Children's Foundation, Nintendo will provide the latest designs for the foundation's Starlight Brave Gowns. My love for Mario, Luigi, and the rest of the Nintendo world, remains strong to this day.

In simple terms, "Mario Mode" changes Google Maps' blue navigation arrow to a go-kart from the "Mario Kart" games.

March 10 is Mario Day.
