You can now turn Google Maps into Mario Kart - here's how

Just as May 4th has become a special day for Star Wars fans, March 10th is now considered Mario Day. Why?

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.

Nintendo has partnered with Google to give Mario and his beloved kart a starring role on Google Maps over the next week, in celebration of this year's Mario Day. Tap it, and for one week you and Mario will be following the same directions.

Mario is hitting the road without a care (or blue shell) in sight as he directs you to your destination. "Then click on the yellow "?" icon at the bottom right corner of your Google Maps app on either Android or iOS. An hour before publishing, we couldn't see it, so check back later on, possibly when you want to drive somewhere.

National Mario Day is coming up and if you weren't sure how to celebrate, Nintendo is giving you an option by slashing the price of its mobile game Super Mario Run by 50%.

There's also an added bonus if you don't mind some repetitive tapping. It's Mario Day, or at least it is because the date itself looks like the word "Mario".

The Google Maps-Mario Kart mashup will be available until March 17.

You'll find this on iOS and Android only, from today, and if you're looking and you can't see it, update the app, as it needs the latest update to work.
