Mario Comes to Google Maps

Super Mario Run

Apparently the (now again) Plumber is taking his Kart and conquering the world. or at least Google Maps. And now Mario is getting on the fun, too.

The new inclusion was inspired by Mario Day and Google is ready to celebrate!

This is not the first time such a feature has been introduced - in 2015, it created a version of Pac-Man that users could play within Google Maps.

The app is, of course, free to download but this discount is for the in-app purchase that allows you to unlock the full game with all of its additional levels and characters.

Once you tap "Let's-a-go!" your position within turn-by-turn navigation will be represented by Mario.

Region's unemployment rate down
But economists say the positive labour market signs will not be enough for the Bank of Canada to raise interest rates. The Canadian dollar rose slightly to C$1.2835 to the USA dollar, or 77.91 US cents, from C$1.2880, or 77.64 USA cents.

I have a feeling this little trick may have something to do with the upcoming smartphone game Mario Kart Tour, which is set to come out anytime between April 2018 and March 2019.

You can use the Mario Kart animation as an optional Mario-themed Easter egg, and why wouldn't you want to?

Mario will be your Google Maps guide from now to March 17. Just "make sure to avoid sharing personal details like your home or work address (seriously, think before you post)", Dabas recommended. Google suggests that you avoid throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers on the road.

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