Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some

"Upon your first click on the "?" icon, you'll be hit with nostalgia.

Even a year ago, for April Fools' Day, Google Maps transformed into Ms. Pac-Man to prank a lot of people. Clearly, Google was preparing a Mario-related announcement for the coming days. Once it does, you can tap it to turn your navigation arrow into Mario for the remainder of the event.

That's because, in honor of "Mario Day" on March 10 (MAR10), Google has partnered with Nintendo to feature the most iconic video game plumber of all time on their "Google Maps" app.




The mustachioed plumber will also make an appearance in Google Maps' navigation, if the users opt in to have Mario to accompany them on the journey. Celebrate in anyway you wish by playing your favorite Mario games, watching the Mario Bros. movie or throwing a themed Mario Party! After this, you should see the Mario on his Kart vehicle instead of auto while navigating the Google Maps.

Go to the yellow question mark available at the bottom corner of your Google Maps Screen, and you will be in for a wonderful surprise. The new Mario icon can be seen on every route you take using Google Maps so it's kind of fun using your favourite gaming character, Mario in works for you through Google Maps.
