don’t get to excited though as you won’t be able to hurl red shells at other drivers, take mushrooms for speed or feel that strange adrenaline-type of fear falling off a rainbow road. it’s still cool enough to want to see though so here’s how…

 

  1. make sure your google maps app is up to date
  2. load up google maps and enter a destination
  3. instead of pressing start press the yellow ‘?’ icon. mario enters and is yours to navigate
  4. bonus info: press the yellow ‘?’ 100 times to hear it make the 1-up sound from the super mario bros games

 

a new mobile mario kart game is scheduled to be released in march 2019, according to nintendo of america
