Much loved Nintendo character Mario is coming to Google Maps!

On Friday morning, Nintendo announced "Mario Day" March 10, (MAR10) will jump start Nintendo deals and sales and announce the appearance of the mustachioed plumber in Google Maps’ navigation, if you opt in.

The feature will be available in the latest iOS and Android Google Maps update. Tapping the yellow question mark, after entering your destination, you will be prompted to enable “Mario Time.” Magically the Google Maps arrow will transform into Mario!

Mario will be available as your companion for a full week, after that Google Maps just won’t be the same.
