Google Maps 8-bit for NES


For April 1st, Google has released Google Maps 8-bit for NES, along with the tongue-in-cheek promotional video above.

Check out the new style on the Google Maps page. There are some details (buildings, creatures) appearing when zoomed in.

Does it look better than this 8-bit map?
