Google is the most ambitious April Fools' prankster and their first April Fools' joke of 2012 is pretty amazing. Google has announced 8-bit Google Maps for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).

Quote from the announcement: "As the first NES cartridge to be released in nearly 18 years, we’re working hard to make Google Maps 8-bit for NES available in the Google Store as soon as possible. A mobile version for Game Boy is also under development. For those who are eager to try Google Maps 8-bit now, we’ve made a limited trial available on desktop: just click the "Quest" box in the top right corner of Google Maps to get started. Please be mindful of dragons while playing. We wish you a safe and happy quest."
