Ushering in a new era of 3D gameplay which still dominates the video game landscape today, Super Mario 64 is arguably the most important video game in history aside from Pong and the original 1985 Super Mario Bros. for the NES. This copy is priced at the lower range of sealed copies and is possibly the least expensive sealed WATA graded copy of Super Mario 64 on the market today. A dime sized tear in the seal near the ESRB rating on the front of the box lends to it's B+ seal rating on this otherwise very clean and presentable copy of this N64 classic.
About Super Mario 64
The key launch title of the Nintendo 64 both domestically and worldwide, Super Mario 64 re-imagined the way console games could be played. In the same sense that in 1985 Super Mario Bros. for the NES established the side-scrolling 2D platformer archetype, Super Mario 64 is credited with establishing the 3D platformer genre. Considered one of the greatest games of all-time, and the best selling game worldwide on the N64 console, Super Mario 64 firmly re-established Nintendo's position as the top video game company of the 1990's.
From a collecting standpoint Super Mario 64 is one of the most sought after video games across all game systems. In the summer of 2021 a WATA graded 9.8 A++ copy of Super Mario 64 brought an earth-shattering $1.56m at auction. Easily the most expensive video game ever sold in public auction, Super Mario 64 is firmly entrenched as one of the most in-demand titles in the entirety of the video game collecting hobby.
