A sealed copy of Super Mario 64 has just sold for $1.56 million at auction, making it the most valuable game collectible of all time.

This copy was sold on Heritage Auctions, and it broke the record of $870K set by a copy of NES’ The Legend of Zelda just a couple of days ago on July 9. While that particular copy of The Legend of Zelda had a rating of Wata 9.0 A, the copy of Super Mario 64 had a rating of Wata 9.8 A++.

According to Wata, a “Wata certification reveals the true value of your treasured video game. It eliminates uncertainty, measures the game’s condition against an absolute scale, and gives buyers and sellers complete confidence in their transaction.”

A rating of 9.8 A++ means that it is in Like New Condition and, besides scoring a 10.0, is the best score a game can hope to get.

“Well — we’re a bit speechless on this one,” Heritage Auctions’ description reads. “What can we even say that would do this copy the justice it deserves? The cultural significance of this title and its importance to the history of video games is paramount, and the condition of this copy is just so breathtaking that we’re really at a loss here. If you have had your heart set on obtaining the highest graded copy of the single best-selling video game on the Nintendo 64 — the first 3D adventure of Nintendo’s mascot, Mario — we only have one piece of advice: this is not an opportunity to waste.”

Nintendo auctions have made the news a lot in the past few years, as a copy of Super Mario Bros. sold for $660,000 in April 2021 and a prototype of the Nintendo PlayStation console sold for $360,000.

If you don’t have the million dollars needed to purchase one of these copies, rest easy knowing you can play it for much cheaper thanks to Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Oh wait, no you can’t.
