New York – The factory-sealed copy of Nintendo Go’s Super Mario Brothers was first purchased in 1986 and sold for $ 660,000 (approximately $ 73.05 million) at the Heritage auction house.
This is the highest price ever offered for a video game, according to the Heritage auction held on Friday.
The limited edition video game designed for markets outside of Japan was purchased as a Christmas gift in late 1986, but it remained untouched until it was placed inside a desk drawer and discovered earlier this year.
The previous record for a copy of Super Mario Brothers for non-Japanese markets was $ 114,000 at the Heritage auction in July last year. In November last year, a copy of the Super Mario Brothers 3 sold for 6,156,000 at auction house.
