Super Mario 64 Sold for a Brutal Amount of Money!

The auction for Super Mario 64 surpasses the record set by The Legend of Zelda just a few days ago.


How much would you pay for an original copy of Super Mario 64 in perfect condition? Whatever you say, it will surely fall short of the price the game has fetched at auction this weekend. $ 1,560,000, more than a million and a half for a copy of the game in its original box, sealed and in perfect condition, with an ‘A ++’ valuation by the appraisers. In other words, one of the copies in the best condition in the world.

The auction occurred last weekend through Heritage Auctions. With a score of 9.8 out of 10 on the Wata scale, which values ​​the quality of copies of retro games for sale, this Super Mario 64 is ” the highest-rated copy of the best-selling Nintendo 64 game”, states the auction house. The result of your sale? We have a new historical record for the sale of any video game.

The auction surpasses the record set by The Legend of Zelda just a few days ago.

The previous record was held by a sealed copy of The Legend of Zelda that sold for $ 870,000 just a week ago, making his throne short-lived. Now, this Super Mario 64 is the most expensive game in history with its 1.5 million price. Interestingly, and before these two auctions, the record was held by a different copy of Super Mario 64 that sold for $ 660,000 last April. At the rate we are going this year, we will surely be talking about a new record in a matter of a few months.

Beyond these retro games that we can never buy, we remind you that Nintendo Switch is preparing to receive several important releases in the coming months. In fact, this July The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is released on the hybrid console as an improved version of the Wii adventure, while, in October, we will welcome that Metroid Dread in 2D developed by MercurySteam.
