Google has already unveiled their first April Fools' Day joke for 2012 and it is elaborate. Watch video below.

Tomorrow is April 1st, and the tech companies are once again entertaining their fans with fun April Fools' Day pranks. 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."


Google has published a fun video demoing Google Maps 8-bit. Watch it below. More April Fools' Day Coverage.
