Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some
Mario Day is right around the corner (March 10—get it? MAR10?), and it looks like Google is putting on a little celebration. Nintendo’s beloved red-capped plumber has started cropping up in Google Maps.
We learned about this from tipster Uren Patel. Uren says Mario’s trademark “? Block” appeared today in the Maps UI; tapping the block offers the option to show Mario as your position marker. The
Yoshi Easter egg could have something to do with Nintendo’s upcoming mobile kart racer, Mario Kart Tour, which is set to release sometime before the end of March next year.
