Navigate Google Maps as Super Mario in his go-kart on Mario Day

Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some

The event starts on March 10th, "Mario Day" (Mar. 10th, Mar-10, get it?).

Google's celebrating Mario Day this week by inviting Nintendo's iconic character into its Maps. The feature will last a week, according to a tweet from Nintendo of America.

Yes, it's not technically March 10 yet; consider "Mario Maps" the company's early present to fans. "To enable "Mario Time", as it's being called, you simply need to update your app from either the App Store or the Google Play Store and then tap the yellow "?" icon you see in the bottom right of the app.

Microsoft says 'majority' of Windows 10 use will be 'streamlined S mode'
Microsoft seems intent on staying with the "Creators" theme for Windows 10, at this point. Microsoft did not comment on the reported name or an official release date.

From then on, the navigation arrow in Google Maps will instead be Mario - who, in his little red go-kart, will then be your companion for your entire trip. Google says that this Mario integration will be available for one week, so you will have plenty of time to get motorin' with gaming's favorite plumber (sorry, Luigi). Let us know once you start seeing this update!

This isn't the first time that Nintendo and Google have teamed up like this. We asked Google if that was the case.

The Mario feature will begin rolling out today - so make sure you've got you've got the latest version of Google Maps installed if you want to try it out.
