  • Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some

By tapping this, the users will get a prompt to enable "Mario Time".

Saturday, March 10, is Mario Day, and Nintendo teamed up with Google to celebrate it by putting Mario on the map - Google Maps, that is.

Go to the yellow question mark available at the bottom corner of your Google Maps Screen, and you will be in for a wonderful surprise.

As part of the celebration of everyone's favorite Italian plumber (sorry, uncle Vinnie), Google Maps is temporarily changing the distinctive blue arrow in its navigation mode to an image of Mario in a racing kart.




To take advantage of this special MAR10 Day, which is actually a week of Mario Time, users need to update their Google Maps app for Android or iOS, from the Google Play Store or the App Store, respectively. The event was originally teased a few days ago with a peek at some of Mario's famous items, but has now been officially revealed as the Super Mario Crossover Event.

The feature only lasts for a week, so enjoy Mario Time while you can.

It appears that the Mario Day Easter egg has already begun to roll out to everyone, so expect to see it on your app soon.

Furthermore, Nintendo announced that Super Mario Run's one-time payment will be at half price starting today until March 25, 2018. You can see have Mario drive around while following the route.
