This Super Mario Bros. Easter egg in Google Search has been around for some time. However, it’s still accessible and a ton of fun to mess with.
Fans of Super Mario Bros. may or may not be aware that there’s a hidden Mario-themed Easter egg in Google Search. For those that were not previously aware of this nugget of information, here’s how you can find it and what you can expect.
Super Mario Bros. is undoubtedly one of the most popular games ever released — and has spawned plenty of newer games since. In spite of its age, Super Mario Bros. still remains popular and one of the most iconic titles in all of gaming history. Players are even still discovering new things about the game! For example, one of the more recent findings was the ability for players to resume a game in the same world they died in.
The original Super Mario Bros. game was first released in 1985. To celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2015, Google added a themed Easter egg to Google Search. While a few years have passed since then, the Easter egg is still there for those who are just finding out about it. What’s more, it’s super easy to access and adds a bit of Mario to the search engine experience.
How To Access The Super Mario Bros. Easter Egg
Accessing the Super Mario Bros. Easter egg, couldn’t be any simpler. All you have to do is perform a search for ‘Super Mario Brothers’ from the Google Search home page. Some derivatives like ‘Super Mario Bros’ also used to work, but at the time of publication, only the full ‘Super Mario Brothers’ search term reveals the Easter egg. Regardless, the idea is to bring up Google’s main page for the game which includes the knowledge panel on the right-hand side of the results. This is the information box Google provides with verified details on the game, such as the release date, developers, platforms, and so on.
Once on the search results page, the right of the game’s name in the knowledge panel shows a flashing image of a ‘?’ block. As is most often the case in the game, this is a coin box, and each time you click it, you’ll get a coin worth 200 points. You’ll also hear that familiar coin sound that’s been made famous over the years. But that’s not all! If you click the block 100 times, you’ll also generate another very familiar sound from the game — and one every seasoned Mario player likes to hear.
It’s worth noting that unlike some of the other Google Easter eggs, this one works best on desktop as the question mark block doesn’t show in the same knowledge panel on mobile. That said, you can technically force it to show up if you’re using the Chrome browser by tapping the three-dot menu and selecting ‘desktop site.’ This will then load the desktop version of the page on a smartphone, and in this case, along with the Super Mario Bros. Google Search Easter egg.
