Google Celebrates National Mario Day by Letting You Ride with Mario in Maps


Google Celebrates National Mario Day: Google is one such company which makes different things happen. So, on the National Mario day, Google is letting their users take a ride with Mario in Google Maps. In order to make this happen, Google Maps has introduced a new feature that will let drivers swap the traditional navigation arrow with Mario and your ride with Mario begins.

Google has announced that it has partnered with Nintendo to bring Mario to Google Maps. Drivers using Maps have the option to swap the traditional navigation arrow with Mario on his kart. To turn on this feature, drivers will have to start navigation to a particular location. Next to the ‘Start’ button, where will be a ‘?’ icon in the shape of the ‘? block’ from the Mario series of video games.

Digit explained, Tapping that will give drivers the option of switching to Mario by selecting the ‘Let’s-a Go’ button. The option to switch to Mario will be available to drivers for a week. Just be on the lookout for blue shells and banana peels.

Munish Dabas, UX Engineer, Google Maps stated in the company’s official blog, “We know a true Mario fan when we see one. They hum the Super Mario Bros. background music on repeat, daydream about collecting gold coins and 1-UP mushrooms, and want nothing more than to traverse the Mushroom Kingdom with Luigi, Toad, and Yoshi to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser. To celebrate our favorite mustachioed plumber-turned-racer on his special day—MAR10 Day—we’ve collaborated with the team at Nintendo to let Mario accompany you on all of your driving adventures on Google Maps this week.”
