Munish Dabas, User Experience (UX) Engineer at Google Maps, said the company has collaborated with the team at Japanese video game company Nintendo "to let Mario accompany you on all of your driving adventures on Google Maps this week".
The company is celebrating the mustachioed plumber-turned-racer on his special day MAR10 Day -- also known as March 10, he said in a blog post late on Friday.
To get started, users need to first update Maps app from Google Play or the App Store.
Once enabled, users would notice that the regular navigation arrow has morphed into Mario -- the 1990s' video game character.
The update would reportedly be available in India from Monday.
