A partnership between Google and Nintendo has brought loved gaming character Mario to Google Maps, to help you find your way all this week and celebrate Super Mario Day. Thirty years later, something truly unbelievable has happened, at least for Super Mario Bros fans.
Nintendo and Google have teamed up to celebrate National Mario Day (which is actually March 10th) with a special Google Maps tribute to Mario Kart.

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.
This is how Google wants you to get started.

Once you're on your way, you'll hear Mario say "Let's a go!" and the Google navigation arrow is transformed into Mario driving the iconic Mario Kart. So, on the National Mario day, Google is letting their users take a ride with Mario in Google Maps. "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!" Well, that's what Google said in a blog recently.
Announced by Nintendo of America, the feature works once you input a destination and choose your vehicle as a auto. This is in partnership with the game developer, Nintendo.More news: Intel To Weigh In Broadcom Bid
