Video Game Auction News game has auctioned for $1.56 million, beating the previous record-holder by almost double. This one was sneaky, coming seemingly out of nowhere to steal the title. Now, this is not just any copy of Super Mario 64. This is a WATA graded 9.8 A++ sealed copy. It’s the highest-graded copy of the best-selling video game created for Nintendo 64. The pristine condition in which it’s been kept is something we may or may not ever see duplicated.  It’s unplayed, unopened, and it looks exactly like it did when it was originally purchased. In the same auction, another copy of Super Mario 64 with a 9.6 A++ rating sold for a comparatively affordable $13,200.

A 9.0 A rated Legend of Zelda reached $115,000 shortly after being listed by Heritage Auctions. By the time the auction closed 19 hours later, it had set a record. The game sold for $870,000, including a 20% buyer’s premium. Now, this is a very rare copy of the game. Within a year of release, a revised version had hit the shelves, leaving this “No Rev-A” edition an incredibly rare find.

Other notable results include a sealed Super Mario World Wata 9.4 A+ that sold for $360,000 and a sealed No Rev-A, 3-Screw Super Mario Bros. Wata 9.0 that brought in $228,000. Take a look at all the results from this auction HERE.
