Tomorrow is April 1, a date that represents "April Fool's Day" - a holiday where people play pranks on each other.

Waldo isn't alone on Google Maps.

You can now play Where's Wally? The list of languages which are added to the support of Google Maps majorly includes European, African and Asian languages. The target is to find Waldo among his group of friends.

What's neat about this gag is that it isn't just an April Fools announcement of a product or service that doesn't actually exist, like Google has done in the past, but an actual game integrated within Google Maps.

Waldo will be available on Google Maps this week, where he will pop up, at which point you can click or tap him to activate the global search. The company releases all sorts of jokes, ranging from the ridiculously lame to the very clever, spanning the simple blog post or video to the elaborate gag or new feature.

For April Fool's Day this year, Google has teamed up with Waldo and will be sharing his location with Google Map users all week long.

Once you find Waldo, you will be transported to places all around the world to search him over and over again. To make the game a little bit more interesting, Google has also included Waldo's friends and rival - Wenda, Woof, Wizard Whitebeard, and Odlaw.

This is the second time in less than a month that Google has incorporated a beloved brand into Maps for a limited time.
