There is nothing more Japanese then seeing Japanese cities while zipping around in Mario Kart. I mean, Mario is arguably one of the most recognizable pop culture icons of Japan. You know that when even the Tokyo Olympics committee also uses Mario as one of the mascots for the big game in 2020. While Nintendo won’t be organizing tours on Mario Kart (much less organizes any tour at all), there is the MariCar to fill the void.

Google Puts Mario On Google Maps For A Week To Mark Mario Day

Google Maps is as useful as it is and therefore, I see no real purpose in sprucing it up with Easter egg, but that does not stop Google from trying to make using Maps fun and the latest ‘thing’ that will make using the Maps fun (at least fans of Super Mario Bros. will be, I think) is the inclusion of the mustachioed plumber and his trusty Kart on the Maps. To mark Mario’s apparent special day, which happens to be on March 10 (that’s MAR10, btw), the team over at Google Maps collaborates with Nintendo to let the world famous plumber and his Kart lead you to your destination.

Look! Mario And Gang Now Drives Sweet, Iconic Mercedes-Benz Cars In Mario Kart 8

we know it is a matter of time before Nintendo starts stepping up its game to play catch up with the other two big players, but we didn’t expect it to start with the console maker’s most iconic franchise, Mario Kart, and it is not doing it alone; the Japanese game console maker has collaborated with luxury car maker, Mercedes-Benz, to feature the automaker’s three iconic vehicles in the Mario Kart 8 game. uh-huh. you heard it right: Mercedes-Benz’s automobiles in an essentially go-kart racing game. for the first time in the history of the game series, real world cars are made available for races and naturally, those cars will be the kart version of the real world rides.

apart from playing Mario Bros, we have many ways to express our love for Mario or Yoshi such as action figures, radio control go-karts or maybe a backpack, like this Nintendo Plush Backpack. they are cute, no doubt but as a man, i can’t been seen lugging this around but for the rest who think they can shoulder the cuteness, there is a choice of either Mario or Yoshi to suit individual taste. this officially licensed backpack is just 17-inch tall, again, emphasizing its cute factor and features a pocket that is tucked on its back, so in essence, it is pickpocket-resistant.

so you think are proficient in Mario Kart? then why not take your Mario Karting to the next level and into the real life? we are not talking about the real Go-Kart that could lead to potential injuries, arguments and sometimes, violence – if you drive like what you did in the game world. there is a less destructive alternative, in the form of the Super Deluxe Mario R/C Cars – though we can guarantee the argument part. with this car, the most you will get is a little “ouch” here and there for knocking into someone else’s legs or a couple of toppled trash cans but most importantly, you will get the full experience of a real life Mario karting.
