Google Maps celebrates MAR10 Day by letting you drive with Mario

- 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.

It's in honour of March 10th, or "Mario Day". Drivers using the navigation on the app will get an option to swap traditional navigation arrow with Mario on his kart, making it a fun experience.

It comes as Nintendo confirmed they are now working on a mobile version of the game called Mario Kart Tour that will be available on iOS and Andriod.

Maybe knowing the strategies of your regular Mario Kart player, Google has likewise issued a notice: "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!"

The easter egg is to celebrate the famous character's unofficial day. All you have to do is type in your destination, and then next to the "Start" button users can see the iconic '?' which will enable the feature upon pressing the button.

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

There is also another easter egg in Google Maps - if you press the '?' button a 100 times, a chime similar to the 1UP mushroom will play like in the classic Mario games. That partnership ultimately resulted in the birth of "Pokémon Go."

The popular racing game series debuted in 1992 with the SNES game Super Mario Kart. Just be on the lookout for blue shells and banana peels.
