Mario comes to Google Maps as a celebration of Mario Day

11 March 2018

To celebrate MAR10 Day (ie March 10), Nintendo arranged a collaboration with Google Maps so that people looking to use Maps as a Global Positioning System can show Mario in his go-kart instead of the usual blue arrow.

Even previous year, for April Fools' Day, Google Maps transformed into Ms. Pac-Man to prank a lot of people. In order to get started with this new stunning Mario Time on your Google Maps app, first you need to update the app on a respective Android or iOS platform.

This is far from the first time that Google Maps has participated in gaming-inspired map themes, most of which have been Nintendo-related.

Tapping the question mark will launch the Mario Time screen and allow you to move forward with navigation. There is a catch for now - users won't be playing a game, but instead will see the app's arrow turn into Mario. After this, you should see the Mario on his Kart vehicle instead of auto while navigating the Google Maps. At the same time, the company reminds users to stay safe and make sure they don't share private details such as their work or home address.

Time to change your clocks; take care
And, if we do not get enough sleep, then it can not fortify and build up its defenses to fight off those icky germs. That way, by the time Daylight Saving Time rolls around, you'll be more or less acclimated to the adjusted time.
