Super Mario 64 game fetches $1.5m at auction

Nintendo lovers everywhere, you now have a new bar set to prove just how much you love that silly plumber, Mario.

At a recent auction an unopened copy of Super Mario 64 sold for a massive $1,560,000! Absolutely shattering any previous records for games at auction.

Released in 1996 for the Nintendo 64, the game was Mario’s first 3D adventure. It went on to become the console’s best selling game ever, with nearly 12 million sales to date.

It is sealed and in near-perfect condition, scoring 9.8 A++ on the Wata Scale.  (Whatever that is)  It’s the only known copy in such condition in existence.

“This is effectively the highest feasible grade one could hope to receive from Wata,” said Valarie McLeckie, Heritage Auctions Video Games Specialist.
