Always in demand, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES has a low sealed survivorship rate relative to how many millions of units were sold, with only a paltry 136 sealed copies listed in total on WATA's December 2022 population report.
This particular copy faces up well and is among the higher-graded copies evaluated by WATA. A clean box front and back devoid of any stickers or distracting marks highlights this attractive sub-$7500 example.
About Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
This iconic video game was the first TMNT video game ever released across any console for this popular mega-franchise. Borrowing cover art from the second printing of issue #4 of the comic book with the same name, this box art even predates our half-shelled heroes donning their signature color differentiating eye masks. Beloved by both collectors of Turtles memorabilia as well as gamers who simply appreciate how great this game was, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a title which is always in demand across all grades in both sealed and CIB format.
While the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise spawned dozens of additional games no other title reached the height of overall popularity than did this first entrance into the franchise. Undoubtedly a top ten title for the original Nintendo system, TMNT is sought out by collectors in all sealed grades, as well as in virtually any CIB condition. With many fans looking to acquire complete sets of TMNT games, this title remains a key to the series in higher states of preservation. One of the most in-demand games in all of video game collecting, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a irreverent "blue chip" title for the NES.
