Google Maps goes 8-bit fools ya fools

But this year they’ve gone all out with an 8-bit layer to google maps that makes it look a lot like an old top down Zelda adventure on the NES.

Check out the following youtube video with an old Japanese Famicon (this was a NES in western regions, and was more gray and cuboid like).

If the above video doesn’t play, try blowing in a random slot on you computer :p.
