Super Mario 64 Copy Sold For $1.5 Million & Yep, We're Serious

Start digging under the bed, Canada! A copy of the video game Super Mario 64 has sold at auction for over one million bucks and here's what you need to know before you throw yours out:

Earlier this week, auction house Heritage Auctions revealed that the "magnificent copy" shattered records when it sold for $1,560,000 USD on Sunday.

According to the auction house, the sealed retro copy is the first game ever sold under the hammer to bring in more than $1 million USD.

Super Mario 64 was released back in 1996 and has since become one of the most loved and best-selling games in the Nintendo franchise.

The copy that just sold for over $1 million was immaculately sealed and had achieved the highest possible A++ grade from experts. This means it's both in almost perfect condition and its seal is intact and "like new."

BBC News explained that the item was worth so much because the copy belonged to an "early production run," making it one of the first ones made to still exist.

"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," read the auction listing.

If you think you could have a copy that's similar to this, it's worth checking its production date and details. You could be sitting on a mini gold mine!

The previous all-time record for video games at auction was set just days earlier when an original Legend of Zelda cartridge sold for an eye-watering $870,000 with the same auction house. Cha-Ching!

While we may be aging, that doesn't mean that our spirit has grown up yet. Inside all of us is a little kid waiting to come out, and all it takes is something to remind us of our childhood and all that sweet, sweet nostalgia comes flowing back. If you're looking for things to do in Florida that will inspire that feeling, look no further than this list.

From boozy Capri-sun-like juice pouches to arcade bars with retro vibes, to Dragon Ball Z eateries and inflatable theme parks for adults, you'll find a little bit of everything on this list.
