Nintendo has partnered with Google to honour their iconic character, Mario. This is done with reference to March 10, Mario day. Mario with his old Kart will be helping the people using Google maps to find their way. Google Maps rolled out the trick on March 9 and it will be live for a week.
The Google Maps update is available for both Android and iOS devices. You can access the Mario Tim by tapping on the yellow “?” icon that is available at the bottom right corner of the app once you have updated it to the latest version.
Perhaps knowing the tactics of your typical Mario Kart player, Google has also issued a warning: “Just remember to practice safe driving on the road—we don’t encourage throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers in real life!”
This is not the first time Google Maps has been updated to feature iconic characters. Locations from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Batman v Superman were also added to Google Maps previously in order to promote the movies.
