One of the Rarest NES Games up for Auction
Bohs Hansen / 3 years ago
Stadium Events from Bandai is probably the rarest NES game ever to exist, as it was recalled just days after the initial release. The game was a test title for the Family Fun Fitness Control Mat that basically was an early version of the technology now found in Dance Dance Revolution floor pads.
“This listing is for a complete, excellent+/near mint, sealed copy of the game and the one of few to ever be sent to the Video Game Authority in Roswell, Georgia for official grading, verification and authentication,” the seller explained.
Shortly after the release, Nintendo bought the technology and recalled the games for a rebranding to the new name NES Power Pad. Only 2000 copies of the game were produced at the time and out of those about 10% made it to the shop shelves. Even less were sold, actually just a handful and only two copies are known to still be in their original boxes.
And one of these two has now made it onto eBay and can be yours, that is if you’re filthy rich. At the time of writing, the eBay auction is up to US $99,999.99 with over 3 days left. The game has also been verified by VGA as well as being sealed in a professional quality acrylic case to protect it from UV rays.
