Mario can now guide your route in Google Maps

Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some

In celebration of Mario Day - tomorrow, March 10, get it, MAR10? - everyone's favorite mustachioed plumber is grabbing the wheel in Google Maps. From now until next week, Mario Kart has overtaken Google Maps, letting users race around the world as they navigate to their destinations.

To use the feature, users must update their Google Map apps via the Google Play or App Store.

There won't be any red shell throwing or bananas along the route, so if you're leading the pack then you don't need to worry about a surprise spiny shell at all.

Google Maps even featured Ms. Pac-Man a year ago for April Fools' Day.

Once your app is updated to the latest version, the feature will appear when you search for directions.

This isn't the first time that Nintendo and Google have teamed up like this. The company's previously turned its mapping app into a full-blown game of Pac-Manfor April Fools' Day and The Legend of Zelda favorite Link has also made an appearance.

Google is encouraging fans to share screenshots of Mario and his kart in action with the hashtag #MarioMaps (just be sure not to include any personal information, like your home or work address).
