It’s March 10, Mario Day! And to celebrate the day of the beloved plumber turned adventurer Google has honored in a very unique and wonderful way that you can experience right now on your phone. For today, Mario has taken over Google Maps turning the GPS app into Mario Kart! I don’t know if you can lay bananas down to trip somebody else up or shoot off turtle shells, but it’s hoot to see Mario in his cart as I am looking the same route I take into NBC Tower.
Google calls the augmentation “Mario Time” and patterned with NIntendo to make it possible.
Happy Mar10 Day!
