In celebration of Mario Day today, Google Maps is rolling out its new feature: Mario navigating your trips.

The legendary mustachioed video game character will now assist you on your routes, Google announced in a blog post. This is in partnership with the game developer, Nintendo.

Titled as “Mario Time,” users have to click the “?” icon after they have input their destination. Instead of the usual arrow appearing, the character in his red cart will be your companion throughout your rides.

Google is also encouraging users to share their experience. By tagging them on Twitter and Instagram, users must take a screenshot of their trip and include the hashtag #MarioMaps.

The latest update is now available for download in both iOS and Android, and the feature will be available during the whole week.  /ra
