Mario Kart Easter Egg Appears on Google Maps

Mario Kart Meets Google Maps This Week

This year Google is going above and beyond to commemorate everyone's favourite red-overalled, princess-chasing Italian plumber by integrating Mario Kart into Google Maps. If there's a sudden spike in people going outdoors this weekend, now you know why. The result: Mario himself will join you in his Super Circuit-era go kart to drive alongside you. We can only hope there isn't some hidden blue shell waiting to knock you off your navigational path. You'll have to update your Google Maps app in order to access the Mario Kart feature; you'll then be able to click on a yellow Question Mark block to turn it on.

The team working on Google Maps is definitely willing to change things around for a quick promotion, like back in 2015 when you could use a TIE Fighter or X-Wing as your navigation arrow within the app in celebration of the wide release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Google encourages all users to practice safe driving while out on the road.
