Cultural News And the most expensive video game ever is… Posted on 02/04/2021 at 22:25, updated on 02/04/2021 at 22:32 Without knowing it, Nintendo is now setting a brand new record! Super Mario Bros., the very first episode of the saga, which first appeared on NES in 1985, was auctioned off at a particularly high price. Who would have believed that in 1985 ?! Not only is Super Mario Bros. a timeless model for 2D platformer, but the title first released on NES continues to break records. Indeed, Shigeru Miyamoto’s creation, which has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide today, is becoming the most expensive video game ever sold. The news is brought to us by Heritage Auctions, the multinational auction house. A sealed copy of the NES version of Super Mario Bros. I found a buyer for $ 660,000, just that, not only is it the best sealed copy (…), it’s also the oldest in Super Mario Bros. that we never had the opportunity to offer. This is only the fourth version of Super Mario Bros. never produced, and its production window was remarkably short. Heritage Auctions As a reminder, the previous record was preserved through another episode of the Super Mario Bros. saga. In fact, as of November 2020, Super Mario Bros. 3 sold for $ 156,000. In third place of the most expensive video games in the world we find again the first of the Super Mario Bros. saga with a retail value of 114,000 US dollars.
