Celebrate Mario Day with half price Super Mario Run

This week on Twitter, Google started teasing a new event for Maps which clearly hinted at something related to Mario Kart, with the bananas from the game littering the streets of a Streetview. You will need to update your app in order to access this feature, but doing so should trigger a prompt that requests permission to replace the standard tracker with Mario. "A new yellow "?" icon will appear next to destinations, which will enable Mario to become the navigation arrow in his kart and accompany you along your commute. An hour before publishing, we couldn't see it, so check back later on, possibly when you want to drive somewhere.

Mario is unquestionably the most recognizable video game character in the world.

Google often brings themed additions to its wildly popular Google Maps navigation app to celebrate pop culture. Get it? It is on March 10, as the abbreviation looks like the word "Mario".

To try it out, update your Google Maps Android or iOS app from Google Play or the App Store. On its blog, Google jokes, "Just keep in mind to practice safe driving on the road-we don't encourage throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers in real life!" It could just be for today and tomorrow, March 10th, or longer (here's hoping).

"Mario Mode" will be available for a week, according to Nintendo. As you can see above, Mario will be in his famous go-kart. What do you guys think about seeing Mario and his Kart on Google Maps?
