In case you weren't aware, tomorrow is National Mario Day.

Google Maps is a popular tool that tells you where you're going and how to get there.

Starting today, Google Maps users can unlock the feature by clicking the question mark box at the bottom right corner of the Directions screen.

Once enabled, for that day you'll be able to swap out the standard auto icon used to show your location during navigation for Mario's go-kart from the game.

It's Mario Time! Beloved gaming character Mario is coming to Google Maps, thanks to a partnership between Google and Nintendo ahead of Mario Day, March 10. You could get Super Mario Run for iOS for 50% off, or you could "drive" as Mario in Google Maps, according to the an update rolling out today.

Back in 2014, Google teamed up with Nintendo to hide Pokemon across Maps.

Mario is hitting the road without a care (or blue shell) in sight as he directs you to your destination. - Mario. He'll be a constant companion wherever you're driving this week - to work, to school, or the spaghetti house.

Google is also asking users to share photos of their adventures as Mario on Instagram and Twitter with @GoogleMaps and the hashtag #MarioMaps. Mario will only be available inside Maps for the next week, so take advantage of this fun feature while you can. 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!
