Now ride with 'Mario' in Google Maps

12 March 2018

Happily, the easter egg is not geo-restricted, so users in Malaysia can navigate to their next destination on Google Maps with the "Let's Go!" quip by the plumber. In 1993, a movie was also made on the Mario Bros.

With Mario being one of the most favourite cartoon characters among people, Google churned out a unique way to inject him back into our lives. On March 10, which has been dubbed "Mario Day", Google chose to give users the chance to be guided by Super Mario himself.

Munish Dabas, an engineer at Google Maps, wrote in a blog post: "To get started, you'll need to first update your app from Google Play or the App Store". Drivers using Maps have the option to swap the traditional navigation arrow with Mario on his kart. "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!"

Ensure that you have the most recent form of Google Maps introduced on the off chance that you need to attempt this update today. The game's creators were Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka. This is in partnership with the game developer, Nintendo. So, this entire week, sit back and let Mario guide you through roads and find shops and restaurants.
