A copy of 1996 game Super Mario 64 still sealed in its original box fetched up to $1.56 million in an auction.

According to news agency United Press International, it broke a world record that set just two days earlier.

Heritage Auctions said the Nintendo 64 game is the first game in the Super Mario series to feature a 3D world.

It sold for $1.56 million, just two days after a copy of The Legend of Zelda fetched for a record $870,000.

“We were shocked to see that it turned out as the same one. We are proud to be part of the event,” Heritage Auctions said.

The Zelda game beat a record, when a copy of the original Super Mario Bros. game from 1985 sold for $660,000.

Meanwhile, a woman from Texas earned two Guinness World Records for her collection of video game systems.

According to various news reports, the 51-year-old record holder started collecting at the age of 8.

Linda Guillory has the largest collection of LCD gaming systems at 1,599.

She also now holds the record for the largest collection of playable gaming systems at 2,430.

Her collection started with a Red Conic basketball game but a conversation with her brother reignited her passion.
