Google Maps goes 8-bit Dragon Warrior-style for April Fool’s
What could be the biggest, and most hilarious, upgrade to Google Maps? Going 8-bit of course! In an ode to console RPGs of yesteryear, and to poke a bit of fun, Google has just added one more view option to Google Maps, called Quest. By selecting this, your neighborhood and the entire world goes 8-bit Dragon Warrior-style.
Most famous landmarks are still there, like the Pyramids, the Taj Majal, Mount Rushmore, the Parthenon, Mount Fuji, the Eiffel Tower and there’s even a UFO in Area 51.
