Google Maps April Fools’!

Google is pretty well know for their April Fools’ Day jokes, and today we are treated to another one, albeit on March 30th (maybe that’s a part of the joke too):

Google Maps 8bit for NES

Here is a quick screen grab of Boston…


Zooming in a little bit a couple landmarks are displayed.  I like the how MIT and the approximate location of the Google offices in Kendall Square are highlighted in Cambridge.


The best part, even StreetView is NES ready!  Sweet…


Good job Google.  This is pretty cool.  For next year, how about you flip your maps “upside down” for the day.

Get to Google Maps now and check this out before it is too late!

p.s. I love April Fools’ Day.
