The escalation of the final auction results has been exponential since only a short time ago we traveled under € 200,000. The special feature of the Zelda lies in the fact that it was one of the first printed copies of the game, a production with no other copies currently on the market; in fact there is only one other specimen, of higher value, which however is not for sale.

And who knows if it will be auctioned since after only two days it has gone from 740,000 euros to over 1.3 million, again through the auction house Heritage Auctions with a 1996 copy of Super Mario 64 evaluated in almost perfect condition 9.8 A ++ Wata for a game that has written the history of video games, since it was the first three-dimensional title featuring the Nintendo symbol. When it will cross the two million dollar wall?
