The Five Most Expensive N64 Games of All-Time

The N64 started up in the September of 1996. For the better half of a decade, it held its own against both the Sega Saturn and the Sony PlayStation, with the result that by the time that it had come to a conclusion in the early 2000s, it had seen hundreds and hundreds of games made for it. With that said, some of these N64 games are much more expensive than others, whether because of low numbers, high interest, or in most cases, a combination of both. Here are five of the most expensive N64 games that can be found out there:

ClayFighter Sculptor’s Cut – $300

Once upon a time, Interplay was a colossus in the video game industry that was responsible for a number of famous franchises such as Baldur’s Gate, Earthworm Jim, and Fallout. One of its franchises was ClayFighter, which started out as a claymation-style parody of Street Fighter with a circus-themed sense of humor. ClayFighter 63 1/3 met with a less than enthusiastic response for the N64 consumer base, but that didn’t stop Blockbuster from securing a rental exclusive called ClayFighter Sculptor’s Cut, which boasted four more characters as well as a fair amount of other new content. Eventually, those copies of ClayFighter Sculptor’s Cut were sold when Blockbuster stores closed down en masse, though there is such a small number of them that single copies can fetch more than $300 when put up for sale.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Adventure Set – $2,500

The Legend of Zelda games often get special editions, which makes sense because the franchise is so popular with the fans. However, some of these special editions are much more so than others, as shown by how the Adventure Set for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask has a value that some have estimated to be around $2,500. In part, this is because no more than 1,000 Adventure Sets were ever produced before being released in Europe and nowhere else in the world. However, it should also be noted that the Adventure Set boasts some other goodies besides the game, with examples ranging from a watch to a shirt. The set even came with a certificate of authenticity.

Turok Rage Wars Gray Version – $150

Turok Rage Wars had a game-breaking bug in its co-op mode that wasn’t detected before a huge number of units had been shipped out. As an apology, the creators declared that they would be willing to fix the problem so long as their players were willing to send in their copies. However, the interesting part is that while Turok Rage Wars was sold with a black casing, the fixed copies came back with gray casings. Ironically, said copies are now worth more than their counterparts, being able to fetch something along the lines of $150 because no one knows the exact number of them that can be found out there.

Wide-Boy 64 – $500

The Wide-Boy 64 wasn’t intended for consumer purchase. For those who are curious, it was supposed to let interested parties play Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games on a bigger screen, which helped to relieve eye strain in media figures who had to play them for hours and hours on end. There are rumors that Nintendo sold the Wide-Boy 64 to interested parties for $1,400, which is a staggering price even when one considers that most of the machinery that made it possible to run those games were crammed into the over-sized cartridge. However, whatever the truth of such claims, the Wide-Boy 64 can fetch more than $500 when put on the market in the present.

Yoshi’s Story “Not for Resale” Version – $1,000 or more

“Not for Resale” versions are just copies of games that are intended for either store display or some kind of internal use. As a result, their rarity as well as their exclusivity combine to make them popular with collectors, with the “Not for Resale” version of Yoshi’s Story being no exception to this rule. With that said, the “Not for Resale” version of Yoshi’s Story manages to stand out even among its counterparts with a $1,000+ value, which can be attributed to the fact that for some strange reason, the cartridge actually hosts a Japanese version of the game but won’t run on anything besides an American version of the N64.
