Google adds Mario on Google Maps to guide your route

This Mario Day, if you manage to take a break from touring Google Maps with Mario, you'll find that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is also in on the festivities with a Mario crossover event that is already underway. In order to get started with this new stunning Mario Time on your Google Maps app, first you need to update the app on a respective Android or iOS platform. While Mario Day will only last for 24 hours by definition, the promotion will remain in the Google Maps application for the next week. "Next click on the yellow '?" icon on the bottom right of the Google maps and then the user will see a prompt to enable Mario Time. Tap that, and the navigation arrow is replaced with Mario riding around in a vehicle from Mario Kart.

There's no way to play Mario Kart in real life, but you can at least feel like it's a proper thing as Mario joins forces with Google Maps this week (but please be safe, folks). On Thursday, Google tweeted an image of Street View in Venice, Louisiana with banana peels from Mario Kart lining the road. It will go like this whenever you use the maps for navigation. He'll be a constant companion wherever you're driving this week.
