Google Aims To Win April Fools Day With Google Maps For NES

For April Fool’s day, Google has 8 bit-ized Google Maps by adding ‘Quest’ to the list of map view options. This turns everything into a Legend of Zelda Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest map (that’s the greater Los Angeles area above), which is of course awesome. They’ve also released a pretty hilarious video, right down to the obvious Japanese developer reading from a phonetically-rendered script, explaining how “Goole Maps for NES” works.

And because I couldn’t resist, here’s what my house looks like.

Check it out for yourself! And trust nothing you see online until 8 AM Monday.

That’s Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest, not Zelda.
