In a move that is as surprising as it is whimsically delightful, Google has decided to bring its globally renowned and often essential Google Maps service to one of the best-selling home computing solutions of all time: The Nintendo Entertainment System.

DEAR OH MY GOD

Okay, so they added that shiny quest button to google maps that shows the map in 8-bits. So far so awesome.

Try the street view in that mode. NOW.
