Wa-hoo! Google Maps transforms for 'Mario Day'

Saturday, March 10, was Mario Day, apparently (MAR10, Mario, get it?). Thirty years later, something truly fantastic has happened, at least for Super Mario Bros fans.

Google has likewise urged clients to share screen captures of Mario in their Map via web-based networking media, so pay special mind to #MarioMaps in the event that you need to see the unavoidable screen captures of Mario going rough terrain when Maps fouls up, and ensure that you don't post individual points of interest on informal organizations. "They hum the Super Mario Bros. background music on repeat, daydream about collecting gold coins and 1-UP mushrooms, and want nothing more than to traverse the Mushroom Kingdom with Luigi, Toad, and Yoshi to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser", Dabas said. This is not the first quirky update to Google Maps that has been implemented, with figures such as Pac-Man roaming the streets, the Loch Ness becoming a traveling companion and the launch of an 8-bit version of Google Maps for April Fool's Day, also in collaboration with Nintendo.

"Titled as "Mario Time", users have to click the "?" icon after they have input their destination. "Just do not forget to practice safe driving on the road-we don't encourage throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers in real life!" The game's creators were Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka. Granted, that's all speculative, but most Nintendo mobile games do change the formula of the original titles somewhat to accommodate mobile features. This won't last forever as Mario is only set to drive you around for a week.
