Dallas auction house sells unopened Super Mario 64 game for $1.56 million
DALLAS (AP)— A copy of Nintendo’s Super Mario 64 that remained unopened sold at an auction for $1.56 million.
The 1996 game sold on Sunday, breaking Heritage Auction’s record for the selling price of a single video game, as reported by the AP.
The auction house said in a statement that Super Mario 64 was the best-selling game on the Nintendo 64 as well as the first to feature the Mario character in 3D.
This past Friday, an unopened copy of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda sold for 870,000.
Heritage Auction’s game specialist, Valarie McLeckie, said the company was shocked that a game sold for over $1 million.
