Let Mario Be Your Drive Guide In Google Map This Week.

Did you know? Today, March 10, is also Mario Day. In honor of this famous game character, Google has partnered with Nitendo to bring the Mario character to Google Map for the whole week.

Exactly what did Google intend that Mario do in the Google Map app you may wonder. Well, the answer is,
Instead of having an arrow in a circle giving you directions, Google intend to use Mario on Kart as your drive guide in Google Map.
To enjoy this thrilling experience, you will need to do the following:
  1. Update your Google Map app to the latest version.
  2. Set your drive destination to get the direction, as you normally do.
  3. Then before you click the Start button, tap on the yellow question mark icon, which is by the side of the Start button and tap on the Let's-A Go! button in the confirmation pop-up that will appear.
And you are all set to let the Mustachioed plumber be your drive guide for the whole week.

While people feel that this partnership has something to do with the Mario Kart smartphone game, which is set to come out anytime between April 2018 and March 2019 we want to note that this is not the first time a notable game character is featured on an app. For example, in 2015, Google celebrated the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens by placing a TIE figure or X-Wing in the app.
