In celebration of March 10, a day that has become known as Mario Day (MAR10... get it?), Google is letting users navigate Maps Mario Kart-style for a limited time.
Load up your blue shells and banana peels because Mario Kart has come to Google Maps. If your app is up-to-date, you'll see a yellow question mark box at the bottom of your screen when you look up directions. Let us know by leaving your comments down below, or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.
Starting today, users will get an option for Mario (driving a go-kart, natch) to take the place of the navigation arrow that represents your vehicle as you drive around.
"Once enabled, you'll see that the navigation arrow has morphed into-who else?-Mario", Google Maps UX Engineer Munish Dabas wrote in a blog post.
To get started, you'll need to first update your app from Google Play or the App Store. As you can see above, Mario will be in his famous go-kart. "He'll be a constant companion wherever you're driving this week-to work, to school, or the spaghetti house".

Apparently the (now again) Plumber is taking his Kart and conquering the world. or at least Google Maps. Before that, Pokémon populated Maps for an April Fools' Day event.
