Let Mario give you directions in Google Maps

Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some

Mario day (also stylized as MAR10 day) has been an annual celebration by Nintendo, incepted because the date March 10 kind of looks like the name Mario when written as MAR10.

The new Google Maps update with Mario Time is rolling out to iOS and Android users today.

He said: "Once enabled, you'll see that the navigation arrow has morphed into-who else?-Mario".

As always, respect the rules of the road. Because Google Maps will be transforming into a real-life (though much safer) version of Mario Kart, because they're going to let Super Mario guide us on our way. Yes, the powerful and super popular gaming character, Super Mario comes to the Google Maps. If there is one game that was immensley popular and played by nearly everyone is Super Mario.

Google has also included a hidden Easter egg in Mario Time: tapping the yellow question mark icon 100 times will trigger the familiar 1-UP sound of Nintendo's Games. Nintendo's beloved red-capped plumber has started cropping up in Google Maps.

You'll find this on iOS and Android only, from today, and if you're looking and you can't see it, update the app, as it needs the latest update to work. You can now update the app to include a Mario Kart feature turning the usual location arrow with the fictional character. Once you click it, a confirmation box will appear prompting you to hit "Let's-A-Go!" or "no thanks", click "Let's-A-Go" to starting having fun and embark on a journey with Mario. He'll be a constant companion wherever you're driving this week.

Google has invited people to share screenshots of their Kart excursions using the hashtag #MarioMaps on Twitter and Instagram.
