Drive Mario Around in Google Maps

Today is the celebration of all things Mario. If you don’t understand why today is Mario day, think about this – It is now March 10th, take out the “ch” in March and replace it with the “10”. You now have Mar10 as in Mario. He is the most iconic mascot for Nintendo and has been around since the 80’s. In honor, of Mario you can now use your Google Maps app to drive Mario around. Just pick a location and start traveling.

As you can see in the picture above, a question block has appeared. Just click that block to get Mario in his kart. This will work for both iPhone and Android users. This feature will be around for about a week so enjoy it while it lasts. Some fans are speculating that this is some sort of tease for the Mario Kart mobile game that was announced a while back. Nintendo also recently announced a new Super Smash Bros. that will be coming out later this year on the Switch.
