Mario invades Google Maps to help you avoid bananas while driving

Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some

Google Maps is rolling out the Easter Egg on Friday and it will be live for a week. It's perfectly simple: someone way back in the dusty ruins of time realized that "Mar 10" looks a little bit like "Mario" on paper, and thus that kinda made it Mario's unofficial birthday.

Nintendo announced Friday that it's teaming up with Google to bring Mario straight to Google Maps on Mario Day.

At the bottom of the screen, next to the Start button, you'll see a familiar yellow?-mark block. Mario Time, as Google calls it, will be available in the latest Google Maps mobile apps starting today. Let us know once you start seeing this update!

Prince George's teen charged with 'threat of mass violence' against high school
Any threat made, especially against a public school, is taken seriously, as is evidenced by a recent incident in Folsom. Police also say that there were no "direct" threats made against the school itself and there were no other suspects.

In celebration of March 10, a day that has become known as Mario Day (MAR10... get it?), Google is letting users navigate Maps Mario Kart-style for a limited time. The result: Mario himself will join you in his Super Circuit-era go kart to drive alongside you. And now Mario is getting on the fun, too.

Google is encouraging users to take a screenshot of Mario inside Maps and share it on social media with the hashtag #MarioMaps. It can be downloaded now for free on the App Store. Make sure not to post any personal details like where you live or work. If so, I'd like to see icons like Link, Samus, Donkey Kong, and more get turned into the Google Maps arrow. It's something to consider.
