The Heritage Auctions called this mint condition Super Mario 64 game, the highest-graded copy of the game. That Wata rating is 9.8 according to the Twitter post that the Heritage Auctions made. It beat out The Legend of Zelda mint copy that was sold at $870k. Wata is a special grading system that is used for retro-style games. Buyers will use that value to determine if what they’re selling is at a good price. I don’t know about anyone else but 1.5million sounds like a good price to me.
