Enjoy Mario Day with Mario on Google Maps

Found 9th MarEdited by:"Superflyguy_uk"
Google is celebrating Mario Day (March 10th, MAR10) in style this year. Nintendo and Google have partnered up to bring Mario to Google Maps on iOS or Android. Mario Time, as Google calls it, will be available in the latest Google Maps mobile apps starting today. A new yellow “?” icon will appear next to destinations, which will enable Mario to become the navigation arrow in his kart and accompany you along your commute.

Haha love stuff like this, have some heat.
Absolutely brilliant
OMG in my opinion Nintendo make all gaming scenes worse so yeah they will it will be worse. Look forward to a rinse and repeat turbine with loads of people saying how amazing the new iteration of the same thing was.

Been crap since the game cube, lets face it folks. The game gear was always better than the game boy, time to admit that now. Atari always made better games. Sega had better games and also I’m willing to admit the GameCube was nothing compared to things like PlayStation or eating jammy dodgers. And jammy dodgers are not even that good.

The thing with nintendo is mario kart was fun. That’s it. Duck hunt had a rifle and that was cool but can we all move on now?

The worst thing is that people have forgotten all of this. We used to all know it.
Why is this a deal?

No thanks

This is just to push their new mario kart game on mobile.

Google will have made some partnership with Nintendo, who I hope wont make the mobile gaming scene any worse (microtransactions...) than it already is when they bring more games.

I've just read that the option is available for one week, it's a shame Mario doesn't give directions in his Italian lingo, that would have been a nice touch.
Thanks! So good you quoted me twice! Enjoy reading it all three times HUKD peeps.

Why do birds fly south?
Couldn't believe the cheek of May 4th, now this?! Mario Day? Unbelievable. Still, good luck to them. Love a bit of Nintendo.

You buying a Switch then?
Cheers this is going to save me so much money
It’s a grey ? For me but that was a small bit of fun this morning. Cheers
Nice bit of fun. While it's promoting a new game, it's a nice bit of nostalgia for some of us who played this on the SNES!
How do I find it ? I’ve opened google maps, latest version, not there!?!
I can’t see either. Do you have to sign in to the app or ok to use as a guest?

Well that was a boring read.
Does this only work if you have Google tracking your activity? I have the latest version of Maps, but no sign of this feature.
I shall be dropping banana skins and throwing turtle shells at other cars on my journey today, and will be disappointed if I don't get a celebratory party when I arrive at my mums. Watch out fellow HUKDealers!
You actually click on the destination and the there's a grey question mark next to it... hot for me! I love Mario !

Agreed. Not a freebie, just news/info.
Anyone got him on your phone yet?
How the hell has this got 500'?

Gave it a go - amusing - problem is with the new cameras setup to catch you using your phone I'm worried this is actually a conspiracy with Google, Nintendo AND the councils of Britain to catch us!

This is real life micro-transactions in play! 6 points and X fine for using handset! Beware!

Shame no audio during the drive from Mario tho - Get a celebratory shout out from Mario once you arrive at your destination which is cool.

Waiting for Luigi Day, Donkey Kong Day, Princess Peach Day (Was that womans day?) etc...
Love it!
Doesn't appear for me any suggestions please

Gamecube was ace saved my money from a paper round for a year just to buy it, Luigis Mansion, Smash Bros, Zelda/Anniversary (free) , Mario Sunshine, F Zero, Metroid, Star Fox Adventures, Resident Evil looked amazing back then too

You could say that about half the 5h1t that gets passed of as deal on here these days
(In Mario voice) Let’s a go!
Not a deal... but heat for making my day!
My sat back used to have mario instead of the arrow

That is actually the one bit of his anti-Nintendo rant I did agree with, I never really took to the GB. To be fair the GG came out a while after the GB and the tech progressed very quickly back then. I did prefer Sega in those days, but Nintendo and Sega had different games and it was a good and wonderful time back then, was all about your individual preference. Although some of us were lucky and got to do both Sega and Nintendo consoles.
Doesn't work
Nothing shows for me ether, latest version of maps

Nintendo is boring, mate. So sorry for boring you. I’ll try and be more riveting from now on.

Really? With it’s crappy green and black screen?

Wouldn’t it be more fun to just pull your eyes out and jump off a bridge? I suppose you only get to do that once though.

Look you’re not wrong.

Do you think the reason it almost ruined the company is because they tried something different?

It’s well documented how the rinse and repeat mario strategy saved them from going bust.
