The Mario Kart-Google Maps crossover is meant to celebrate Mario Day, which is March 10 (you know, Mar10, wink wink). Mario Time, as Google calls it, will be available in the latest Google Maps mobile apps starting today.

Fanatics of the many Mario themed video games can enjoy the special update for a week, according to a statement released by Google.

Starting today, users will get an option for Mario (driving a go-kart, natch) to take the place of the navigation arrow that represents your auto as you drive around. "Once you do that, you'll see a yellow "?" icon at the bottom-right corner of the app; tap that and follow the prompt on screen to start navigating the world as Mario. Google has teamed up with Nintendo to bring Mario to Google Maps on Android and iOS devices. You don't want to get into an accident because you were too busy staring at Mario riding his little kart.
