Google Maps turned into Mario Kart for Mario Day

Google Maps turned into Mario Kart for Mario Day

Mario alongside his great old Kart will hold a situation in Google Maps' arrow, which is utilized to demonstrate the area where the client is heading.

Google Maps and Nintendo announced a temporary, opt-in feature that allows users to "navigate the world as Mario".

"Mario Mode" will be available for a week, according to Nintendo.

At the bottom of the screen, right beside the spot where you'd normally see "start navigation", you'll see a? question box.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Will Get Android 8.0 Oreo Starting March 30th
After that, the Galaxy Note 8 was released too with the Android 7.1 Nougat OS. Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) gets a new build number A530FXXU2ARB9 .

It comes as Nintendo confirmed they are now working on a mobile version of the game called Mario Kart Tour that will be available on iOS and Andriod.

To activate Mario Time, enter a destination and request directions in Google Maps. For one week, in celebration of your favorite plumber's special MAR10 Day (that's March 10 if you didn't catch it), you'll be able to bring him along on your driving adventures, whether it's your daily drive to work or navigating around an unfamiliar place. And even as they encourage you to share a screenshot of your route with Mario, they also caution about having any personal details like your home address on the image that you will share with the hashtag #MarioMaps.

As a historical sidenote, Google and Nintendo have worked together before for these kinds of fun stunts. That partnership ultimately resulted in the birth of "Pokémon Go." In the "Super Mario" games, these blocks dispense mushrooms and other useful items. Just be on the lookout for blue shells and banana peels.
