Google Upgrades Maps to 8-Bit for April Fools'

Google, always known for creative and fun April Fools' jokes, have done it again and prepared over 10 pranks for this year's first April Sunday, although there could, of course, still be more floating around.

My personal favorite is the "upgraded" Google Maps technology, which even warns you that "your system may not meet the requirements for 8-bit computations." Heh!

By clicking the "Quest" button, you'll enter the new world of 8-bit Dragon Warrior GMaps, which doesn't only look super-cool in the eyes of people around my age, but also comes with some special landmarks, pandas and bosses, some of which you can admire in the also-new pixelated, color-flooded 8-bit Street View mode. (Not the pandas or bosses, though.)

Check out Google's clip for a brand-new NES GMaps below, and then move on to find all the other pranks this year! =)
