Google’s April Fool’s Joke So Epic They Debuted It a Day Early

A throw back to all of you out there that have experienced the frustrations and joys of owning Nintendo’s first console, the NES; Google has come out with a tool for you that will help you find places you need to go on your 8-bit system. They announced today that they will be releasing a Google Maps 8-bit cartridge for the NES. You can plug in your dial-up connection directly into the cartridge and you’ll see the world in 8-bit goodness. If you have problems with it a fix is as easy as blowing the dust out of the cartridge.

Rather than take my word for it you can check out the debut video for this awesome new product. If you can’t wait for the cartridge to be released though you can experience a trial version by pointing your browser to maps.google.com followed by clicking the quest option in the upper right hand corner. Check out the debut video for this awesome product after the break. While it may be a day early… April Fools
