Get Directions From Mario Inside Google Maps


Google is celebrating Mario Day on March 10 by letting you drive around town as the iconic Nintendo video game character. That's right, you can have Mario help guide you to your destination when you're using Google Maps to help guide you on your way. Once you hit the question mark, you will be able to enable "Mario Time".

If you aren't sure how Mario ties into Google Maps, remember, his name is a part of the greatest racing franchise of all time - Mario Kart. Once it does, you can tap it to turn your navigation arrow into Mario for the remainder of the event.

But why is March 10 Mario Day, we hear you ask? Once this is done, you'll get a prompt to enable "Mario Time".

"OK Google (Hey Siri), have Mario take me somewhere to get burgers". Going forward, Mario will be your companion wherever you are driving this week-school, work, restaurant-anywhere.

To try it out, update your Google Maps Android or iOS app from Google Play or the App Store.

Nintendo will celebrate Mario Day by slashing the in-app purchases price of buyable content in Super Mario Run by 50%, lasting for two weeks. "Whether a longtime fan or someone new to the world of Nintendo, Mario can power up anyone's day". Google Maps also offers "street view", an option that lets a user see what it looks like on the ground in any given location.
