Enterprise-Record (Chico) - - NEWS -

DAL­LAS » An un­opened copy of a vin­tage Su­per Mario Bros. video game has been sold for $114,000 in an auc­tion that un­der­scored the en­dur­ing pop­u­lar­ity of en­ter­tain­ment cre­ated decades ago.

A bid­der who wished to re­main anony­mous snapped up an early ver­sion of the pi­o­neer­ing Su­per Mario Bros. game re­leased in 1985 for Nin­tendo’s NES con­sole dur­ing an auc­tion con­ducted Fri­day by Dal­las-based Her­itage Auc­tions.

The Su­per Mario Bros. copy that sold for a new record was part of a col­lec­tion of video games from the 1980s and 1990s that sold to var­i­ous buy­ers for nearly $700,000, which was well above Her­itage Auc­tion’s ini­tial tar­get of about $500,000.
