Mario just drove his kart right into Google Maps

To help celebrate March 10 (MAR10), or Mario Day, Google Maps is teaming up with Nintendo to bring the kart-racing plumber into the app to help you get from one place to another, all while avoiding digital bananas. The feature will last a week, according to a tweet from Nintendo of America.

Beginning today, Mario will accompany you on your adventures around town.

Once enabled, for that day you'll be able to swap out the standard auto icon used to show your location during navigation for Mario's go-kart from the game. Once you hit the question mark, you will be able to enable "Mario Time".

Yes, it's not technically March 10 yet; consider "Mario Maps" the company's early present to fans. But of course, don't share personal details like your work or home address, if you do so. Plus, Google and Nintendo have worked together before on silly stuff like this, as with the April Fool's day prank involving the "launch" of Google Maps 8-bit for NES.

If you want to control the music from the background, like pausing and playing, you will be able to do that as well. If you're using Spotify on PlayStation Music, the "square" button will serve as the shortcut for volume control.

A new update for Google Maps on iOS and Android is in the process of rolling out.

But in this case, adding Mario to Maps feels more like a brand advertisement, rather than just a fun trick.
