Everyone's favourite Italian plumber is waiting to race his kart around your screen on Google Maps!

It's the 10th of March, which as everyone (no one) knows, means it's Mario time!

(March 10 = Mar10 = Mario. Clever, huh?)

Google Maps users on iOS and Android are already seeing a pop-up, as above, offering them the chance to brighten up their journey with some good old-fashioned Nintendo joy.

Once the 'Let's-a-go!' button has been tapped, Mario provides a turn-by-turn guide of the navigation.

If you don't get the pop-up, simply click the yellow '?' icon in the bottom-right corner when you've entered your destination, and Mario will be delighted to steer you in the right direction.

I suspect that this fun little stunt might have something to do with the promotion of the upcoming Mario Kart mobile app - but that's no reason not to revel in the colourful ecstasy of Japanese gaming!

There's even an Easter egg for particularly eager Maps-using Mario fans - if you tap the question mark 100 times in a row, you'll hear the unmistakable 1-up sound from the game.

Enjoy!
