Large Image: The Legend of Zelda launches in North America at a retail price of $49.99 plus taxes. Sure, no one at the time imagined a copy of the game would hit $100,000 in the North in less than 35 years, but that's the exact scenario that's running now.
Heritage Auctions is currently offering the first edition of The Legend of Zelda, which has fetched a maximum of $115,000 since it was written (and still has about 19 hours to finish the auction is). This special edition of the game, rated at 9.0W, is just a copy from one of the early production stages that Heritage had a chance to introduce, having been in production for only a few months in late 1987.
There was only one version Prior to this release, which is the "NES TM" version of the first true production, there is only one sealed copy of it today. The Legend of Zelda debuted in Japan on February 21, 1986, before finally making its way to North America more than a year later. Nintendo has sold over 6.5 million copies of the game during its run, and is considered by many to be one of the largest and most influential video games of all time. It also has a very deadly soundtrack. p>
