  • Mario Kart is coming to Google Maps for one week only

However for fans of Nintendo's Mario franchise, you might know that tomorrow is also known as Mario Day, or rather because the 10th of March can also be written as MAR10 (Mario). The feature will be live for the entire week in honor of Mario Day on March 10. Google Maps is rolling out the Easter Egg on Friday and it will be live for a week.

"After users install the latest Google Maps update, when searching for directions, a new yellow "?" box prompt will show in the bottom right, next to "Start".

The US$9.99 (S$13.20) game will be on sale at US$4.99 during that period.

This year Google is going above and beyond to commemorate everyone's favourite red-overalled, princess-chasing Italian plumber by integrating Mario Kart into Google Maps.

This will be available on both the iOS and Android versions of Google Maps. A year before that, it introduced a game called Smarty Pins, a map-based trivia game where users guess locations based on hints. And now Mario is getting on the fun, too. Update the app, look for the question mark, then you can enable "Mario Time". Clicking that will enable Mario mode and he will replace the standard blue dot, or Street View's Pegman.

Google is encouraging users to take a screenshot of Mario inside Maps and share it on social media with the hashtag #MarioMaps.

The Japanese game company is now working on "Mario Kart Tour", the first time the series will appear on smartphones.
