For those who grew up on Super Mario or those who've just discovered the joys of playing the game in whatever format, Nintendo and Google have a surprise treat for you if you use Google Maps to navigate your way around your city.

The Japanese game company is now working on "Mario Kart Tour", the first time the series will appear on smartphones.

This is not the first quirky update to Google Maps that has been implemented, with figures such as Pac-Man roaming the streets, the Loch Ness becoming a traveling companion and the launch of an 8-bit version of Google Maps for April Fool's Day, also in collaboration with Nintendo.
