To activate Mario Time, enter a destination and request directions in Google Maps. This is not the first quirky update to Google Maps that has been implemented, with figures such as Pac-Man roaming the streets, the Loch Ness becoming a traveling companion and the launch of an 8-bit version of Google Maps for April Fool's Day, also in collaboration with Nintendo.

Google is playing great today by bringing Nintendo's mustachioed star, Mario to Google Maps in another Mario Kart to observe Mario Day - March 10.

Google truly understands fans - Super Mario Bros fans - when they see one.

Mario Time only lasts until Saturday, Fox 13 reports, and works for both iOS and Android apps.

Once enabled, users would notice that the regular navigation arrow has morphed into Mario - the 1990s' video game character - complete with his iconic Mario Kart. "Just keep in mind to practice safe driving on the road-we don't encourage throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers in real life!"

Ensure that you have the most recent form of Google Maps introduced on the off chance that you need to attempt this update today. Next to the "Start" button, where will be a '?' icon in the shape of the '? block' from the Mario series of video games. "From there, you'll just need to click on the yellow "?" block that appears in order to enjoy the temporary mode. This is in partnership with the game developer, Nintendo.
