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.
Now ride with 'Mario' in Google Maps
- March 10 has been dubbed Mario Day and in honor of the day's new title, Google partnered with Nintendo to turn Google Maps into a video game.
Mario Time only lasts until Saturday, Fox 13 reports, and works for both iOS and Android apps.More news: Childcare worker jailed after drugging kids to 'go tanning'
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.More news: Google Doodle honours chemist who accidentally discovered synthetic dye
