The latest Google Maps Easter egg is set to roll out just in time for Mario Day, which is apparently March 10. (Get it? MAR10? We sigh.) For a week starting this Saturday you can replace your usual location icon in Maps with an image of Mario riding a go kart—red homing shells not included.
To summon the mustachioedplumber, make sure your Maps app is updated. Pull up driving directions like you normally would and look for a suspicious-looking yellow question mark block to the left of the regular Start button. Tap it, and off you “a-go” with the image of a cartoon plumber on a kart instead of an arrow in a circle.
I have a feeling this little trick may have something to do with theMario Kart smartphone game, which is set to come out anytime between April 2018 and March 2019. Until then, this cross-branded Easter egg will have to do.
