A rare version of Super Mario Bros. 3 has sold at auction for an astonishing $225,000 NZD.
It is the most money ever paid for a video game!
The cartridge, made in 1990, is still sealed and is in near-perfect condition.
What makes this copy even rarer is the ‘Bros.’ logo being aligned to the left rather than the right. This small, but important feature means it comes from an early production of the game.
The previous record for a rare and sealed version of the 1985 game Super Mario Bros. sold in July this year for $172,000 NZD.
