The Rarest and Most Valuable Super Nintendo (SNES) Games

Rare and Valuable SNES Games

Here is another chance for you to raid you closets or used game stores for hidden treasures. The Super Nintendo is the target of this expedition and there are plenty of highly-collectible games this time around. Surprisingly, many of the the most valuable SNES games aren’t actually rare, but are instead driven by popularity and the hunt for elusive boxed SNES games in good condition.   This guide has recently been updated, and the update could not have come soon enough as there has been a lot of inflation in not only complete copies of games, but also many cartridges as well over the recent years.

In stark contrast to the Cheapest Games series, this series will round up the rarest and most valuable games for a given console or handheld so you’ll know what to look for whether you are buying or selling.  Below you will see two prices beside each title. The first is the average daily selling price, which is typically the going rate for the cartridge by itself. The second price is the highest daily selling price of recent history. The list is ordered by the balance of the two prices. Note that some of these games are not rare in the sense that there are not many available, but rare relative to demand, which makes the games expensive.

The Expensive Super Famicom Imports

It’s rather difficult to find solid rarity and value information on Super Famicom titles unless you have a Japanese connection, but here are three of the most desirable Super Famicom releases from the research we did. If you have more to add, please use the comments section below.

Dodgeball Championship Gold Cart Kunio-kun no Dodge Ball Zenin Shuugou Tournament
Special Gold Cartridge: $1,100 – $1,300
Rarity = 10
There were a number of Super Famicom games that were released as limited edition gold carts for tournaments in Japan, one of the most valuable being the Kunio-kun no Dodge Ball Zenin Shuugou Tournament Special. It was given away as a prize to winners of Technos Japan’s Dodgeball Tournaments, which they used to host several times during 1993.

Fire Emblem Box Set Fire Emblem Thracia 776 Box Set: $150 – $270
Rarity = 7
Before the Fire Emblem series came to the US on the GBA and Gamecube, it was a very popular strategy RPG series in Japan. To satisfy the many fans of the series an feature-packed box set was released that included maps, posters, toys, and other cool stuff. Check out this forum thread to see picutres of the complete Box set.

Rendering Ranger R2: $120 – $299
Rarity = 5
From the makers of the Turrican series, this run-and-gun shooter is one of the most desirable standard-issue Super Famicom games. It is hard enough to find a bare cartridge of this game, but it will more the double the value if you have a complete boxed copy.

Limited Edition Collectibles

Extertainment Box Exertainment Mountain Bike Rally/Speed Racer Combo: $1000 – $2500
Rarity = 10
While some people are hawking the single game carts for a handful of money, the rare version of these games actually has both the Speed Racer and Mountain Bike Rally game on it together. For use with the LifeFitness Bike Unit. One of the rarest games for the system, as it may have not seen full or any retail distribution. This 2 in 1 most likely never made it to any stores, and most copies that have been found have been from NOA’s warehouse itself!   The last two reported sales for the game were for loose cartridges for around $1400 each.  If a complete copy was to surface, it would be easily much more.
batman-forever-set Batman Forever Woolworths Box Set: $900 – $1300
Rarity = 10
This PAL Limited Edition box set was only available from Woolworths and is very hard to find. The set includes The game, Making Of Game VHS, Batman Diary, Batman Sticker, Competition Entry Form & the outer Slipcase.  As many of you know, they game wasn’t especially popular and in the days of people not really collecting video games, most people who purchased it would not have kept all the items and packaging together, let along in good condition.  It has surfaced on eBay a few times in recent years, but hasn’t always reached its asking price.

Donkey Kong Country Competition Cart Donkey Kong Country Competition Cartidge: $728$1200
Rarity = 9
Donkey Kong Country Competiton cartidges were used by Blockbuster Video in tournaments held within the store, and never receieved a true commercial release. (The cartridge is rumored to have a print run of 2,500 copies) As typical with most video rental stores, a few leftover carts were tossed into the bargain bins for customers to purchase. Nintendo Power also offered some extra carts in their catalog.

Star Fox Super Weekend Cart Starfox: Super Weekend Cartridge: $400 – $799
Rarity = 9
Much like the DKC Competiton cartidges, this Star Fox cart was used by Blockbuster for game tournaments and extra carts were sold off by Blockbuster and Nintendo Power. An article included in the original packaging suggests that the Starfox Weekend cart actually had a smaller production number (around 2,000) than the DKC cart, but for some reason the Star Fox cart has showed up on auction sites a bit more often and has fetched a lower price.  It has been listed on eBay a number of times and not sold for asking prices of $255 and $285

Treasured Standard USA Releases

EVO the Search for Eden Cover Art EVO the Search for Eden: $150 – $3350
Rarity = 4
The game can not only be tricky to find, but is has a bit of a following. It is a unique platforming/role-playing game and is very highly regarded by gamers which helps increase its popularity.   While a complete copy can go for about $200, a factory-sealed copy recently sold for $3,350!  (the highest I’ve seen any standard SNES game sell for).   Unlike Earthbound (see below), we haven’t seen any digital re-releases to help cool the demand for the game.  Bare Earthbound cartridges can still edge out EVO in terms of value, but those complete and sealed copies of EVO are SO hard to come by!
2010 Value: $60 – $115

Earthbound Cover Art Earthbound: $160 – $2500
Rarity = 2
Another game that is not hard to find, but is very popular. The game is famous for its cult like following of fans. It is a non-traditional RPG taking place in suburbia and weapons are every day household items. Still regarded as one of the most enjoyable RPGs to this day.  Prices have increased quite a bit for Earthbound over the last six years — nearly doubling in value over the past 3 years.  Granted, a complete copy might only cost you $600 to $700, some sealed copies have recently exceeded $2000.

Hagne Cover Art Hagane: The Final Conflict :  $150 – $962
Rarity = 4
This was a hidden gem for many years and has recently become one of the best SNES collectors pieces. A few years ago, you could find a copy of this game for around $50 dollars.  In July of 2012 James of AVGN posted this video of obscure SNES games that praised Hagane and mentioned it being a Blockbuster-exclusive title. However, some Blockbuster store managers mentioned that they saw it sold new in Electronic Boutiques stores. Regardless, the fire of rare game talk was lit and Hagane has been near the top of SNES collector’s lists since.  We may never truly know what the real circumstances are — we can only observe the true supply and demand on the open market.   The game itself is a side-scrolling action game from Hudson Soft that has a graphical style that feels more at home on the Genesis or TG16 and a gameplay style that seems inspired by the likes of  Shinobi III on the Genesis.

Aero Fighters Cover Art Aero Fighters – $370 – $700
Rarity = 8
Aero Fighters was released as an arcade game in 1992 and then ported to the SNES two years later. When it was brought over they made very limited quantities so it is one of the hardest games to find on the system — especially in complete condition.  After being under the radar for a while, this gem is finally getting more recognition in collecting circles and has taken off in value (couldn’t avoid the aviation analogies).  The $700 value mentioned above is actually a very conservative estimate for a complete copy.  I haven’t seen a successful sale of a complete copy in a while, but considering over $2000 was asked of one and loose copies are many hundreds of dollars, this could actually take over some other titls or more on the list.

Metal Warriors Cover Art Metal Warriors:  $170 – $766
Rarity = 4
This sidescroller was published by Konami, but developed by LucasArts. Very much influenced by Cybernator/Assault Suits Valken and is considered by some to be an unofficial spinoff of the series. According to an interview with the developer, it was built on the game engine of “Zombies Ate My Neighbors”, but you’d never guess by looking at it.  The game has slowly built up a bit of a following among collectors and has recently begun climbing these rankings.

Mega Man X3 Cover Art Mega Man X3: $140 – $700
Rarity = 4
This beauty has climbed a bunch of spots on this list since its 2010 edition, nearly tripling in value.  The $700 value quoted above isn’t even for a sealed copy like the high values on EVO and Earthbound above.  Mega Man X3 was one of two games to use a specialized chip called Cx4 that allowed for some 3D graphics in games (Mega Man X2 being the other title). Because of this chip it is an oddity and has some of the best graphics on the SNES. It is also hard to find. These two factors combine to make it one of the more expensive Super Nintendo games.

Wild Guns Cover Art Wild Guns: $140 – $400
Rarity = 4
There aren’t a ton of Western-based video games or really good Cabal clones (shooting gallery-style shmups) to my knowledge. Wild Guns also delivers in every area from graphics, music, controls and challenge.  With this being a high-quality, unique SNES exclusive, it’s not hard to see why the value of this game has been climbing, especially for complete copies.

Harvest Moon Cover Art Harvest Moon: $150 – $400
Rarity = 4
Harvest Moon was released the same year the Nintendo 64 was launched so many gamers had already moved onto Nintendo’s new console and didn’t bother buying this game. The Harvest Moon series also has a cult following of gamers who want to farm and try to get a girl to like them. This is the first in the Harvest Moon series so many of these fans want to buy the game that started it all.

Ninja Gaiden Trilogy Cover Art Ninja Gaiden Trilogy: $110 – $610
Rarity = 4
Earthbound isn’t the only SNES game to get lots of love over the last few years, this trilogy has also doubled in value since 2010.  All three NES Ninja Gaiden games combined onto one cartridge with some graphical improvements and passwords added, but most mid-1990s gamers didn’t think this was enough to warrant a purchase. The lackluster sales at launch helped keep this gem hard to find.

Castlevania Dracula X Cover Art Castlevania Dracula X: $100 – $400
Rarity = 3
Castlevania Dracula X is the final Castlevania game released on the SNES and like many games in a series the later versions don’t sell as well. However, the hardcore following of the series and SNES collectors keep the price of this title rather high.

Mega Man 7 Cover Art Mega Man 7: 100 – $306
Rarity = 3
After seeing NES Mega Man games rise in value, it is no surprise to see the trend continue with the SNES installments.  While Mega Man 7 didn’t really bring anything new to the series (and was possibly even a step backwards for Capcom), it still ended up as a collector’s item. It is the first and only title in the main series to make use of 16-bit graphics and the eight Robot Masters in the game are the product of design contests held for fans in Japan.

This installement of the underground-popular run-and-gun series saw a release late in the Super Nintendo’s platform life. The game has been re-released on the Wii Virtual Console in 2008 but resale prices have only increased since then.

Chrono Trigger Cover Art Chrono Trigger: $80 – $1,200
Rarity = 2
The game is not rare, but is rated as one of the best games of all time on many gamers’ lists. It was created by an all-star cast of developers and stands up to the test of time in terms of story and game play. Typically, a complete copy of Chrono Trigger goes for about $150 to $200, however a sealed copy exceeded $1,200.  It is worth mentioning that loose copies have dropped a few dollars over the last eight years — possibly because of the DS re-release.

This game is a follow-up to the Gargoyle’s Quest games on the Game Boy and NES, but unlike it’s predecessors, shared a dark, gothic feel with the Castlevania series.    The game is a mix of standard platfroming with mild RPG elements.  A complete copy in good condition can be obtained for a little over $200, however, a sealed copy recently sold for $800!

Enix, the publishers of the game, only made 25,000 copies of the game for sale in the US. The game is very hard to find because of this limited release. The Ogre Battle is a very good strategy RPG game too, so many RPG fans want to buy it just to get a chance to enjoy a great game.

Incantation Cover Art Incantation: $60 – $760
Rarity = 4
This little title got lost in obscurity due to being a mediocre Mega Man knock-off at the very end of the SNES’s lifespan.  The developer, Titus, already had a relatively bad reputation at the time, so the game really got buried in the bargain bins by the time it left stores.  Over 15 years later, Super Nintendo collectors are trying to flesh out more of their collections and finding this piece to be a challenge to track down in good condition.

Super 3D Noah's Ark Cover Art Super 3D Noah’s Ark: $120 -  $303
Rarity = 4
The biblical video game producer Wisdom Tree, got around Nintendo’s strict licensing system and released a laughably bad clone of Wolfenstein 3D. This plug-thru cartridge that required another game to be attached in order to run removed every reference of violence and Nazis, replacing them with hungry animals requiring your ammunition of ‘sleep’-inducing snacks.   Obvisously, this is an interesting conversation piece which adds to it’s collectability.

  1. Does anyone know if Ninja Gaiden Trilogy is NTSC only? Because I haven’t found any indications to indicate if it ever saw a PAL release.

    There are a few SNES games that I missed out on the first time round which either never came to Australia or are way too expensive. Last I had a fully boxed version of Harvest Moon.

  2. jon says:

    i had bought ogre battle for like $15 when i was like 13, i don’t know what happened to it, i loved that friggin game.

    Here’s a picture of the actual mountain Bike Rally/Speed Racer box. Feel free to use it if you like.

  4. racketboy says:

    Thanks! That’s incredible that you have a sealed copy :)

  5. radixor says:

    Lufia and the Rise of the Sinistrals — one of the BEST games I’ve ever played. I still play it every now and then.

  6. Pec says:

    I sold a copy of Ergheiz and Einhander both rare Squaresoft Playstation games for $240 on Ebay about a year ago.
    Damn those were good games… I miss them.

  7. maximus_clean says:

    I have all these NTSC games, i have half of them factory sealed ;-) truly fun itmes to own.

  8. victori says:

    secret of mana did not hit the list? I would of expected that game to be a bit rare?

  9. Adam says:

    I only found out there was a Japan-only dodge ball game released for the SNES a short while ago, and now I see it’s also the most valuable SNES game there is (at least for its gold cartridge edition.) I don’t know about the SNES version but I’m a huge, huge fan of Super Dodge Ball for the NES (just check my website for proof). Nice list!

  10. jjgames says:

    How do some of you get so many sealed copies of these games? Did you buy them back when they came out and never open them? Buying new, sealed SNES games on this list would cost a small fortune.

  11. Ryan says:

    Does anyone know if Final Fantasy 2 American version or Final Fantasy Mystic Quest are worth anything like some of the ones listed above

  12. John says:

    super mario RPG is the best game for SNES

  13. Chrono says:

    Chrono Trigger FTW!!!!!!

  14. I totally missed out on some great games that generation. I for some reason decided to go Sega Genesis this gen rather than the SNES. I had some awesome times but look at all I missed. Good luck getting them now. I’m not paying $200+ for those games now.

  15. I got a great job making video game software by posting my resume at http://www.computerjobs.com/userlogin.aspx?_panel=1&mkt=t6

  16. WasherDryerCombo says:

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v177/washerdryercombo/finalfightguy.jpg

    You should also include Final Fight Guy to your list. The game was only available at Blockbuster for rent making practically impossible to fine a copy of the game let alone a box in good condition.

    It’s about a 150 dollar game.

  17. Dave Greiman says:

    Oh yeah! Nice list! And naturally I own none of these… hehe

    I sold my copy of Super Mario RPG to one of my friends a long time ago…i sooo regret doing that, but i think i can still get it back from him! I hope… :(

    You forgot my favorite Atari 2600 game…..Custers Revenge!

  22. Gamerforlife says:

    I love these lists, though it’s always funny to see games that aren’t that great become so highly valued. Most people agree that the NES versions of Ninja Gaiden are better than Ninja Gaiden Trilogy ports for example.

    And those “special” versions of Starfox and Donkey Kong Country? Why not just buy the FULL versions for less? Collecting is a strange hobby sometimes.

    I am loving these lists though as I’ve said, and it’s always great to see games on there that DESERVE to be highly sought after, like Mega Man X3 and Super Mario RPG.

  23. poit says:

    i dont know if anyone put this down (cus i dont wanna read. but FF3 (SNES American) is worth a butt load. last one i saw in a store w/o box was about $75

  24. Thaiboxerguy says:

    I LOVE Earthbound. I still have my original copy…Hell, I still play it.

  25. King edmond says:

    One game that is very rare is combetribes. A very cool game.

  26. Adam Cooley says:

    Some guy said that “FF3 is worth a buttload” above. I see it constantly on ebay for $20-30. That’s not a “buttload”. It also went down in price after the GBA FF6 came out.

    I was shocked while reading this, I have nearly every game you mentioned except Harvey Moon, Earthbound, Ninja Gaiden Trilogy, and the imports. What’s even more shocking is that I got all of them for $6 or less at local pawn shops. And try this: I have THREE copies of Chrono Trigger. I’m not bragging, but I am trying to illustrate a point: I live in a town of 40,000 people, and these were all relatively .. not EASY, but not IMPOSSIBLE to find just by going to thrift stores/pawn shops for years. So, my advice to anyone who is reading this, this may seem obvious, but don’t look to ebay or amazon for your gaming needs… explore your town.

    I was surprised that Dracula X was worth that much. I remember picking it up at a pawn shop and not liking it, because.. well, its’ pretty bad.. luckily, I got Castlevania IV about a week later at the same place for $6.

  27. Allan says:

    I have a 720 SNES NTSC game collection, 667 have manuals, maps, posters, etc… 40 are in boxes, 2 sealed. Also accessories like complete Miracle Piano System and stand, Batter-Up boxed, Lethal Enforcer with pistol boxed, Super Scope 6 with rifle boxed, controllers, etc… Trying to get the word out that I will be auctioning the entire collection on Ebay at the end of March, no later than the first week in April 2008. I’ve only seen one other auction similar to this and it sold for $15.5k on Ebay March of 2007. I do not want to part with it but just purchased a dream fishing camp on Pearl River and wife say’s something has to go to pay for it!!! Spread the word!!!

    I also have the game genie and books. some of the games still have the original box they came in.
    I have all the mega men games.
    And of course i have the supernintendo game system

    It really depends on the games. I would recommend asking in the forum to get a good idea.

  37. EGGZ says:

    The final fantasy 1&2 combo in it’s original box is alot rarer and deserves top spot on the list of famicom imports.

    Dude ie:(Just curious) I have like over freaken 500 snes titles and alot of the ones on this list. That is what true collecting is about

    Do you happen to have a dollar value for the FF combo?

The best game in the bunch was Orge Battle the march of the black queen! some of the other games of value were super mario kart, super metriod, zombies ate my neighbors, zelda link to the past, etc. I basically got Orge Battle the march of the black queen for $1.25! lol i love it. my pawn shop people around town are smart and they have different prices for games depending on their value. i got this deal from a college student who was moving back home.

  42. EGGZ says:

    Yo whats everyones rarest snes game. Mine is the final fantasy 1&2 famicom combo.(Just got it off my buddie)& is anyone willin to sell it to me??????

  43. EGGZ says:

    Daniel Sorry buddie I live in Europe

  44. david says:

    Other favorite games of mine that I have are: Secret of Evermore, Secret of Mana (one of the greatest games of all time behind the FFs and CT), and of course, Mike Tyson’s Punchout

  45. felix says:

    my rarest game is the pal-version of the StarFox Super Weekend Edition, called Starwing Competition Edition, in german (i think there exist pal-versions in german, french and english). i got it a while ago from a friend of mine for free (i even told him about its value before!).

    one copy is on ebay right now:

  48. Daniel says:

    Bought Mario RPG from the flea market today for $3! I go to the flea market every week and usually find 1 great game for cheap.

  49. Ziggy587 says:

    Glad to see I have some of games on that list. EVO is one of my favorite SNES games. Mario RPG is a must have, such a great game. I’m also a huge fan of the Castlevania series, so Dracula X is in my collection.

    I always wanted to get Mega Man X2 and X3, but never felt like coughing up the dough. I really should get them soon though as SNES is my most cherished old school console.

  50. Brandon says:

    Earthbound was such a hard game, I don’t think I would have ever finished it without the guide. I guess that’s why they packaged the game with it! What was great about the game, is that once you beat the final boss, you had to go around returning items to people you met along the way. Only when you went back to your “home” did you finally see the true ending! Great game! (And I still own it by the way ;P)

    Big ups to Chrono Trigger as well, absolutely classic.

  51. Ryan says:

    hi can some one help me i use to own a game called TIME but now i cant find it and i look on the internt to see if i can buy it but that game never comes up so can some 1 help me i dont know what im doing wrong it might be he worng name but yer idk please email me the name ty or what ever :)

  52. Ziggy says:

    There are games called “Time Slip,” “Time Trax,” and “Timecop.” Other then that, here are some titles that had ‘time’ in it… Illusion of Gaia was known as Illusion of Time in Europe. Mario’s Time Machine, TMNT4: Turtles in Time, Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego. There’s a few more, but I ruled them out.

  53. izzy says:

    Niiiiice list u got there. . Big fan of super mario rpg, megaman x3. What’s the donkey kong competition???? Neva heard of it. (Anyways best game I’ve ever bought UMK3

  54. Bill says:

    FF Mystic Quest can’t be worth too much, I’ve seen it over a dozen times and the game basically sucks (have had a copy for at least 15 years). Final Fantasy 3 is probably one of the greatest RPGs of all time. I guess final fantasy 2 didn’t make the list? My all time fav SNES game would probably be Utopia.

  55. Dweather52 says:

    selling a lot of super nintendo games on Ebay. most of the games are complete including New Horizons and Uncharted Waters, Aerobiz 1 and Aerobiz supersonic

  56. Dweather52 says:

    Hi. Someone please help me out. I am trying to remember the name of a game for the super nintendo. I remember there were three mermaids and one gave you a sword the other gave you a shield and the other one i think gave a helmet. then you go fight (i think) underwater against some guys on seahorses or something. If you know the title of this game please reply or send me an email to eaglecfp@aol.com thanks

    i only found out not that long ago they had Harvest moon for the super nintendo and when i searched for it and saw pictures of it..makes me want it!!!!i already have alot of harvest moon games(not every single one though..)

  62. Larissa says:

    You missed The Wizard of Oz. I’m not sure what it’s worth, but I heard from someone who works at Slackers (It’s a midwest retro gaming store) that it’s pretty rare. I have it, and I think it’s a lot of fun. I mean, it’s not worth much, but it’s just so hard to find anymore cuz not many people bought it when it was out.

  63. D. Amaral says:

    You guys forgot to add Internation superstar soccer deluxe right on top of the list, to me it is one of the best among the other. And yeah, still playing my snes…ALways, don’t touch it! Later

  64. EGGZ says:

    Hea I finaly got the UK versian of Harvest Moon (factory sealed original box) would any one happen to have a value for it( i bought it from a little flea market so….)???

  65. Will says:

    I actually won the store championship at my local blockbuster playing Donkey Kong Country for N64. I wish i had a copy of that cartridge.

  66. Will says:

    I mean SNES not N64.

  67. SuperJamario says:

    suprised there is no mention of Captain Novolin…
    little known game, looks pretty pricey on eBay..

  68. racketboy says:

    Haven’t heard of it — any idea of price ranges?

  69. SuperJamario says:

    on ebay there were couple going for 70 – 80 bucks

  70. Mary says:

    Hey!
    I am wondering if anyone has any Super Nintendo games or any equipment they want to sell. I don’t care if they are valuable, I let my kids play with my old one and I think they are getting bored with the few selection that I have for the game system.
    I’ll get back to you with the full list of games I have right now, but just to name a few.
    I have Beavis & Butthead
    Mario Allstars
    Starfox
    Spectra
    Mario Land
    Mortal Kombat 1,2,&3 (I think)
    Street Fighter
    I have a few more I’ll have to go look at them to get the rest of the list.
    But please do help me, I want to find them something different to play.
    Thanks!
    *mary*

  71. Tom says:

    Why didn’t Dragonview make it to this list? I’ve only ever found one copy after renting it a thousand times from 1 video rental store and the copy I bought was from the same store when they went outta buisness. They should have given me the darn thing at that point.

    Great game if you can pick it up. The 3d mapview was the only downfall… but you can look past that with everything else.

  72. racketboy says:

    Dragonview doesn’t even sell for $17 on eBay.
    There were a bunch listed for that price, but nobody bought it….

  73. dirge says:

    wheres final fight guy?

  74. Ross says:

    Hey there can someone help just dug out sns got the power cord what other cord do i need and were does it go

  75. racketboy says:

    Compared to many of the other Super Famicom games, FF Guy wasn’t THAT expensive. It’s a nice piece though.

  76. sypher says:

    @ racketboy
    The actual rare version one of the above posters is talking about was an exclusive blockbuster only version. Not the standard SFC one.

    It has english instructions, special box and ntsc cart i believe. Im still on the look out for one :D

    Crazy how the SNES prices are at the moment, people paying tons for non rare games :P

  77. racketboy says:

    Thanks for the clarification, sypher :)

  78. sypher says:

    No worries, great work by the way! :)

  79. frank says:

    One of my favorite games had to be U.N. Squadron. I’ve seen it on Ebay , but im pretty sure i can find it at one of the flea markets around town. I think the snes had the best games of all time, due to the originality and the fact that they were simple and fun.

  80. Mike Sparks says:

    I acquired a Super NES game cart entitled “Super 7 in 1″. It is probably a Famicon game. Can anyone tell me about this game and its value???

  81. C. Marbut says:

    I have an old Mario 3 game that allows you to keep getting bigger by pushing certain buttons. It has been years since I have played it, so I think that was how it happened. The subject came up lastnight with my son (who is almost as old as the game)he said there were only 200 that were released with that mistake. I am unable to find info on it online. Can anyone point me in the right direction, also interested in its value, still works fine.
    Thank You

  82. Videogamer says:

    I have downloaded a rom set containing over 9GB (that’s gigabytes!) of SNES roms. While their’s not that many different games for SNES to make such a large file, this rom set contains different versions (such as beta, 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, etc) of most games as well as different regions U, E, J (US NTSC, Europe PAL, and Japan NTSC-J) verssions of most games. It also contains level edits and graphics/text edits of some of the more popular games (such as Super Mario World). This adds up. So when I saw about the rare games list here I decided to check my own SNES roms on my emulator. And found I have a rom of the SUPER RARE and SUPER EXPENSIVE dodge ball game. As proof, here’s the file name:

    Kunio-kun no Dodge Ball – Zenin Shuugou! Tournament Special (J) [!].smc

    galera preciso de ajuda pra achar um jogo nao encontro e tbm nao sei o nome, e de um menino tipo um mago com uma varinha e soltar uns podersin, se alguem souber pleasi ajude xD

  84. erk says:

    hey do u all realize that you can play these games again absolutely free with emulators. just google snes emulator

  85. DarkTechie says:

    Man…what I wouldn’t give to find a working copy of Wild Guns for SNES…

  86. killerrobot says:

    I recently restarted Earthbound. My friend bought it from Goodwill a few years ago for $3 and gave it to me when he was done with it. Great game, I don’t think I’d sell it even for $50.

  87. killerrobot says:

    $150 though, maybe we can talk. ;)

  88. kix says:

    what about international superstar soccer regular and deluxe version? Those are pretty rare aren’t they?

  89. racketboy says:

    Is that a PAL release? Unfortunately, I don’t know a ton about PAL exclusives.

  90. Marios says:

    Hey

    I traded in my SNES a long time ago and all the games but i have recently found the boxes for the games. i was just wondering if these empty boxes were worth anything?

  91. racketboy says:

    some people might pay a decent amount for them so they can make their games worth more. you might want to sell them as a group on ebay

  92. SuMtOnE says:

    mang wish i still kept my old games and buy 2 copys of everythin and leave 1 mint n sealed hehe…

    wish i was a lil older than so i can work n have the money for it grrr…

    o wells… ill find them one by one

  93. Qweetix says:

    Here are some of the most valuable PAL SNES titles:

    Secret Of Mana = 100$
    Secret Of Evermore = 80$
    Castlevania – Vampires Kiss = 250$
    Starwing Super Weekend = 200$ (Starfox Competition Cartridge)
    Harvest Moon – 200$
    The Firemen – 100$

  94. Sean says:

    I have a NES Metriod sill in the box, original everything. How much is it worth??? let me know. my email is stmin2008@gmail.com

  95. Pete G says:

    Another good source for finding vintage games is craig’s list, people are constantly unloading all kinds of video game stuff there. If you put in an add (free) that you buy video games, I promise you your e-mail will blow up, especially in the bigger cities. Love this site, keep it up.

  96. trashfan says:

    @Qweetix:
    Are you talking about sealed copies? Harvest Moon is by no means worth so much!! You can get the PAL version for about $40 dollar CIB. Secret of Mana isn’t worth that much either, as well as Secret of Evermore. I agree with Starwing Super Weekend Competition and Castlevania though..

  97. Asbjoern says:

    Trashfan: Yeah, I’m talking about boxed copies. Harvest Moon is very rare, 40$ is for the german PAL version. English or Australien PAL is really expensive… This is my opinion, but maybe you are right about Mana and Evermore.

  98. DANIELA says:

    I have a Super com comsole from Germany that has many games programed inside but can also use the cartridges. I have only see it once before at a nintendo museum site. I was wondering if anyone knows the value of this? Thank you, Daniela

  99. extent says:

    if its hard to find, then collectors will pay almost anything! Just remember theres no such thing as how much something is worth, its simply how high will you keep bidding over someone else to get your item! In that sense you may make more money selling items individually than as a collection on occasion. If you sell ebay, remember to be as clear as possible in the description on how collectible or rare your item is. Boxed copies will always go for far higher prices than cart only. It seems most of the collectible games on the snes are either rpgs or carts produced only for competitions, which can often sell for around the £50 or $100 mark, sometimes alot more.

  100. extent says:

    just a note, if you really want to make big money out of your collections, then you should really keep them for at least another 10 yrs ;) you know items are far more collectible when they are completely impossible to find.. and i still see the odd super nintendo appear in the second hand section of the local newspaper! you may be able to sell items now for $100+, but how are you going to feel if in the yrs to come, you could have sold them then instead for 4x as much. Lol

  101. roland says:

    they may be worth more in the future but if you need the money now it might make sense to get rid of them since the future value is most likely going to be inflation more than the rarity, and hardcore collectors will be more picky about what they want i guess it could pay off big, i hope so i have a few hundred nes games and 150 or so snes games plus many systems and extras i can’t bear to part with them but maybe for the right price i would they are practicly priceless to me already.

  102. forkix says:

    Dang, I wish I lived in a big city for gaming reasons. I have to use ebay for my gaming needs as my local used video game store charges wayyyyy to much for games. They want like $40 for Contra III cart only. $27 for Super Mario World which is nuts.

  103. What about Terranigma? It was never released in the US and is the “sequel” to Illusion of Gaia. Great game, and very rare and coveted.

  104. Action Games | Other | Log In said... said... says:

    the harvest moon game cart is rare I would give it a 4.5/5.

  105. Skullboy says:

    Terranigma is the best rpg ever released on the snes!
    I have a mint copy of the game. Why this game never was released in the US is a mystery to me.
    Other great rare snes games:

    Ninja Warriors
    Run Saber
    Knights Of The Round
    King Of Dragons

  106. Rudy says:

    I know what you’re saying about pawn shops. I found 2 copies of Chrono trigger on 2 separate occasions for 5 bucks a piece. I found a third for 5 bucks but I didn’t buy it because I was second guessing its rarity. Little did I know…..

    I’ve also found a 6 dollar copy of Suikoden II, a 2 dollar copy of Final Fantasy Chronicles and a 2 dollar copy of Final Fantasy 1 for the nes still in the box with everything.

    It does pay to explore your town.

  107. Rudy says:

    I also found a copy of Final Fantasy III for 5 bucks and my friend found a copy of Secret of Mana for 5 bucks at the same place about a week later. Since they were both doubles of ones that we already owned but I didn’t own Secret of Mana, we just exchanged them with each other :)

  108. Doomed Saint says:

    oh man I had Mario RPG and traded it to a friend for Illusion of Gaia which I think is a better game but now I’m kicking myself

  109. John says:

    I just got a sealed copy of pieces in perfect condition for 5$ at a collectors garage sale!

  110. Marco says:

    is this an awsome deal chrono trigger, super mario rpg, zelda link to the past, breath of fire (complete), final fantasy anthology, chrono cross, and mario paint (complete), Final Fantasy X, and The Bouncer for $100

  111. Mettaur Man says:

    i found a Complete SNES at a thrift shop for $10 but dont have any games yet… still need to chek at the thrift shops

  112. Mettaur Man says:

    trying to find the street fighter games first…im dying to play a game on my SNES!

  113. MFGreth says:

    You’re forgetting Umihara Kawase for the Super Famicom. That game goes from anywhere between 45$ to 175$. For real. It’s because it was a highly acclaimed game with limited production and little sales until after it stopped being made. Not only do the Japanese look for this game with fervor, but so do American SNES lovers, as it really is one of the finest platformers on the system.

    It’s a shame how hard it is to get, because it’s really that good.

  114. Mettaur Man says:

    My Friend Found Street Fighter II Turbo For Me!

  115. forkix says:

    I just purchased Final Fight Guy with the box on ebay. Anyone ever seen a manual for it for sale? Let me know.

  116. forkix says:

    The game itself is somewhat rare..you can get it on ebay for around $35. The box and manual are ultra rare because it was only used as a rental game. (Final Fight Guy)

  117. nubs says:

    i went to tijuana and went to a flea market and bought EARTHBOUND for 50 pesos = about 4 .25 in dollars i was so happy :D

  118. Samurai Sam says:

    I have the FE5 limited edition. :)

  119. vikki nisser says:

    what is the game where 4 busty bimbons are dancing in lingerie then they go to showers/bath and then bed ?

  120. Mettaur Man says:

    that game would be the gay gorilla game special; very rare

  121. joseph says:

    out of curosity how much would a super nintendo in good condition sell for?

  122. racketboy says:

    I’d say about $20 – $30. Check eBay’s completed auctions for better ideas :)

  123. Eax says:

    Anyone know if this is legitimate or not?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Chrono-Trigger-Sealed-Super-Nintendo-Squaresoft-SNES_W0QQitemZ250446776074QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVideo_Games_Games?hash=item3a4fca870a&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

    Regardless…if it is, you can expect the sealed premium for Chrono Trigger to remain high for at least the next couple months.

  124. racketboy says:

    It’s probably legit — its nice to have a lot of pics and he seems to know his stuff

  125. joseph says:

    how much would a n64 in pretty good condition be worth? and the game majoras mask to it?

  126. joseph says:

    i got pretty much all the sega satern games and the booklet to them just dont have the sega saturn itself how much would the games be worth?

  127. racketboy says:

    Well, I might not be totally accurate (check eBay for better quotes), I’d say $20 for the N64 and like $7 for Zelda added.
    Lots of games can be hard to estimate.
    You’re really better off picking out the valuable ones and selling them seperately.

  128. joseph says:

    mr.bones,nascar 98,highway 2000,cyber speedway,bug! thats some of them.

  129. racketboy says:

    Those are only worth a few bucks a piece — pretty common ones… sports games aren’t worth much at all.

  130. joseph says:

    tell me of some that are worth anything please.

  131. AB says:

    I have a brand new Super Nintendo Entertainment System that I wish to sell, but am not sure how much it is worth. Still in box with original paperwork and packaging. Anyone know how much it is worth?

  132. SunshineMan says:

    i have one thing to say to all of u dont wanna pay that much for the games but wanna play them: EMULATORS!!!!!!! lolz oh ond for old school feel a USB controller so u dont have to use the keyboard

  133. Evergreen says:

    I collect rpgs and similar games like Secret of Evermore/Mana, terranigma, lufia/s, harvest moon, etc. Msg me on myspace if u have games like these 2 sell with box and manuals, additional posters etc Myspace url is http://www.myspace.com/evergreen_gamer

  134. forkix says:

    Super Copa should be #1 for treasured releases.

  135. can’t believe you forgot Super 3D Noah’s Ark!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_3D_Noah%27s_Ark

    It’s one of the most rare games for the SNES ever! (and the only unofficial SNES game ever)

    I’ve got one factory sealed laying in my videogame shelf :)

  136. Troglodyte (Cory) says:

    I just purchased a copy of Super 3D Noah’s Ark for a little under $50.00… it’s going for over $100 on eBay… I might sell the original if after having a reproduction cart made if that is possible.

  137. Jason says:

    I’m not sure if I believe the prices here. My family just closed their long running video game exchange store, and I have almost every game on this list, except mario rpg. I do have three UNOPENED copies of chronno trigger that are sealed in some type of plastic bag with a grade-type sticker on them. They are worth thousands? If anyone wants them email me jaycfunnyman@aol.com I’d be happy to get anything close to even $500 for one! First come, first serve. Will take paypal.

  138. Donney says:

    I have bought Wild Guns PAL for $120

    I also have a PAL Pocky and Rocky.
    When I reset the game, i can play Super Mario World
    Another reset, and Harvey’s Humongous Adventure comes on the screen, reset again and I can play a Japanese Robot shooter. You come back to the Pocky and Rocky game when you reset again.

    Does anybody knows anything about?

  139. TK says:

    Where’s Terranigma? It wasn’t released in the US, it’s very popular, and it goes for over 100 $ boxed

  140. Dark Sol says:

    Where’s FInal Fight Guy?

  141. CHRISTIAN AWIRE says:

  143. nintendogs says:

    You forgot to mention the Dragon Ball Z saga: 1,2,3 and hyper dimension… These are available in PAL and japanese version

  144. ProChosen13 says:

    Man so funny. Back when I was like 12 (I’m 24 now), me and a friend were renting games. We decided we were gonna try the game that looked the stupidest from the box, just for shits n giggles.

    Well our choice was Ogre Battle, we had never heard of it, assumed it would be retarded. Fell in LOVE with it, got our whole school obsessed with it. You literally had to rent it on Tuesday if you wanted it for the weekend.

    Ogre Battle is such a freaking awesome game. I still play it once a year with friends and I’m 24 now.

  145. Hawk95 says:

    Yall should get Seiken Densetsu 3. It is one of the COOLEST GAMES. (I think it’s awesome).You can get it at http://www.coolrom.com/roms/snes/.You can get other games there too.

  146. Pro21xx says:

    I got a couple of those rare games up there like Mario RPG, Kirby Dream land 3 and Mega Man X3

    PLEASE, IF ANYONE OUT THERE HAS AERO FIGHTERS IN MINT CONDITION! CONTACT ME at megaman21xx@hotmail.com I WELL TRADE OR MAYBE BUY IT OFF YOU

    I have all the Shmup games released on the snes and its this ONE GAME thats stopping me from completing my snes shmup collection

  147. Pro21xx says:

    Never mind I bought Aero Fighters for 80 of some guy, WOOT!

    guys if you talk to the sellers in ebay very respectful on an item you want, they might give you one hell low of a disccount.

  148. April says:

    I saw a Mario RPG on a website brand new and sealed for $400.

  149. Eyedunno says:

    Interesting. I loved the arcade version of Aero Fighters and as soon as I saw it in EGM, I wanted to buy it, but I never actually saw it in any stores at the time. Now I know why. I prefer my Super Famicoms (I have a regular one and a Jr.) to my SNESes anyway, so maybe someday, I’ll hunt down a Japanese version, which will be (somewhat) cheaper. I can read Japanese, so I can take advantage of good prices on popular RPGs too (demand is lower in the U.S. while supply is higher in Japan). I got Chrono Trigger for around $15 with shipping (boxed with manual, even though I don’t really care – the one I found that was just a loose cartridge got bid up to $12 before shipping, hah!) and both FFVI and Mother 2 (which actually sold really well in Japan) together for about $25 with shipping.

    Some of the SFC games that cost me a relatively high amount were Umihara Kawase (close to 10,000 yen or $100-ish, IIRC, though I got it complete and with an official strategy guide), Clock Tower ($44 loose!), Benkei Gaiden: Suna no Shou (actually much cheaper on eBay right now than I paid for it in Japan… damn), and Super Mario Collection (=All-Stars).

  150. PT-23 says:

    EarthBound was my favorite on the list, its expensive but worth it, I saw a copy go for over 1,000 dollars sealed just like with Chrono trigger. http://exophase.com/industry/sealed-earthbound-copy-fetches-1000-11306.htm if you want to see it. All these games are pricy but all of them are good.

  151. Marco says:

    I recently found mario is missing for $10, how much is this game worth

  152. Things says:

    I recently bought EVO with box for $80. I wonder if that’s too high…

    Oh my god dude I had the game Rendering Ranger R2. But I couldn’t beat it so a couple of friends and me put kerosene and light it on fire. Only if I knew it was gonna be worth that much. :(

  154. h2rtn says:

    the mere fact that all of you are saying you got these super “rare” games for 2-5 bucks for nes and snes means that street value these things are worth much, much less then you think. maybe at special auctions or collector conferences you can get more for them, but people know that goodwills and pawn shops sell these things dirt cheap, and normally that’s where they get them from. if you want to know the real value of something, look it up on ebay and see what the final bid is.

  155. EGGZ says:

    Been a long time since i was on here. Just wanted people to know that i will soon be puting up the famicom version of final fantasy 1&2 combo pack on ebay. stay tuned for details. (only for serious collectors, price will be 1000+)

  156. A lot of games missing from that list…

    hello there this game:

    Kunio-kun no Dodge Ball Zenin Shuugou Tournament

    the first game on the list if it not gold cartridge is it still extremely rare

  158. beks says:

    I was just cleaning out all my junk at my parent’s house, found a box full of super nintendo games and my system, all in good working order. I figured what the heck I never play them I’ll throw them all on amazon.com, expecting maybe to get $5 a piece if I’m lucky, still a nice chunk of change if I sell them all….much to my surprise, I have sold four so far for $30, $30, %16 and $20. Not chump change whatsoever. Used and not in box! I’m not sure what’s up with the demand but hey it’s nice to get rid of some stuff and make some good money.

  159. erik says:

    Man How rare is Aero Fighters? I remember a friend of mine having that game back like in 1996. I played that game. It was pretty good. Never in the world would have I imagined it was such a rare game.

  160. john says:

    hello me again is anyone interested

    Kunio-kun no Dodge Ball Zenin Shuugou Tournament

    the first game on the list if it not gold cartridge is it still extremely rare.

    if so any offers

  161. jesse says:

    hello i have all these games and where can i sell these games on ebay ? please email me

  162. Brandon says:

    Jesse, I would love to buy some of the games off of you. I am building a collection of every game for the SNES and am only about 1/3 of the way there. email me at brandonleske@yahoo.com I look forward to hearing from you!

  163. pack says:

    Damn it!!!!! i had Chrono Trigger AND Megaman X3 AND X2!!! why the hell did my mom throw THem away soooo many years ago!!!!!!!!

  166. rudy says:

    I know what you’re saying about pawn shops. I found 2 copies of Chrono trigger on 2 separate occasions for 5 bucks a piece. I found a third for 5 bucks but I didn’t buy it because I was second guessing its rarity. Little did I know…..

    I’ve also found a 6 dollar copy of Suikoden II, a 2 dollar copy of Final Fantasy Chronicles and a 2 dollar copy of Final Fantasy 1 for the nes still in the box with everything.

    It does pay to explore your town.

    At 7/21/2009 8:56 PM, Rudy said…
    I also found a copy of Final Fantasy III for 5 bucks and my friend found a copy of Secret of Mana for 5 bucks at the same place about a week later. Since they were both doubles of ones that we already owned but I didn’t own Secret of Mana, we just exchanged them with each other

  167. kierran says:

    just wondered how rare mario kart gold cartridge for snes is

  168. Bycks says:

    @ kierran
    Was there ever released a GOLD Mario Kart for the SNES? I didn’t think there were any GOLD Snes carts other than the few Japanese ones. Is the game from japan?

  169. Samus says:

    SUPER METROID FTW!!!!…chrono trigger was alright too…

  170. Brandon says:

    If anyone has a copy of Donkey Kong Competition or the Exertainment Mountain Bike Rally / Speed Racer and wants to get rid of it please let me know. I am dying to buy these two games! Thanks -Brandon

  171. Brandon says:

    I guess I should have left my email for contact purposes haha if you have either of these email me at brandonleske@yahoo.com Thanks everyone!

  172. Super Smash Bros. Fan says:

    Expect prices of Earthbound to go up soon and a sharp one at it.

    There has been unconfirmed rumors that the game will not make an apperance on the Virtual Console, due to (unconfirmed) legal issues.

    Let’s just hope that doesn’t happen. I’ve never been able to experience Earthbound legally and if the game doesn’t come to the VC, it could become unaffordable for gamers like me.

  173. Jimmy Dean says:

    @Matthew Callis

    As most collectors know, japanese games are not worth a whole lot over here since they are not playable on our systems. Like the Famicom version of Stadium events. its worth about 20 bucks, where the NTSC version is worth 40k. big difference there! So those games you listed may be hard to find, and rare IN Niponland, but here in the USA! USA! USA! (have to say it 3 times or its un’merikan) its worth diddly.

  174. tony says:

    Hey i have a factory sealed X band video game modem for snes. Original shrinkwrap with barcode sticker and a “get your first month free” sticker. Opened box goes for about 40 on ebay… MINT condition box, shrink wrap has a rip on one side on the seam, but you can tell it has never been opened. Anybody know what its worth or interested in buying it?? fabreezeo@hotmail.com going on ebay within a week if no one wants it.

  175. robert says:

    i have donkey kong country for super nintendo, how much is it REALLY worth now? and would anyone really pay as much as it is worth for it??

  176. Chris says:

    Does anyone know of anyone selling or have for sale the snes game
    super back to the future 2? I have been searching the internet for some time but cannot find a seller.

  177. Cory says:

    If anyone is interested, i have the very rare exercise bike that was made for the game “mountain bike rally” the bike is called the lifecycle 3500. it is almost impossible to find and if anyone would lke to buy it, i have it listed on ebay right now. if anyone wants anymore info feel free to email me. my email address is bartmanca313@hotmail.com

  178. Cory says:

    here is the link

  179. Scott says:

    Great list of games! Though as one other person said on here, where is the game Terranigma? That is a hard game to find! I saw it go on Amazon for $400! It did sell okay in Japan, but finding it now anywhere is extremely rare and will charge you up the wazoo!

  180. Duncan says:

    I have been collecting snes,nes,and n64 games for last 5 years. l have about 250 snes, 150 nes and 100 n64 games. It’s a fun hobby and it is an awesome feeling to stumble across a stack of old games at a yard sale or flea market priced a dollar each. That is happening less and less though as people inflate the prices though ebay and used game stores. I hate overpaying because you know the seller probably only paid a few bucks for a game and is now trying to flip it for a ridiculous sum.

  181. Sean says:

    I seem to remember some really obscure JRPG (Japan-only release, I’m sure) that I read go for over $1k a couple of years ago. It was set in modern Tokyo (well…mid-90s) and was remarkable in how “adult” it was in content. Your character was just an average bloke trying to earn his/her way through life. You could be a yakuza enforcer, real estate agent, heck, even a Moss Burger employee (different chain store of course). I wish I could find this one.

  182. Liam says:

    Pop and Twin Bee? Europe version… Think its a port a Japanese game… Wasn’t popular here in the UK, can’t remeber where my copy came from??? I think that has to be worth a few quid.

  183. Peter says:

    I had supermario rpg but i gave it to my cousin. Damn WHY DID I DO THAT? im retarded!?!?!

  184. Jonathan says:

    My cousin has Sunsetriders and when i was lookin for it on EBay, it it was rare. Although its rare its fun as skippin school. its also an arcade game. look it up on Wikipedia. youll see it has changed over the years. two examples are the the levels and the women. with the SNES i think it has more levels and the women used to look like hookers. (keep in mind that im like 11)

  185. Anthony says:

    Metal Warriors and Kirby’s Dreamland 3 are both games that i am finding are going for quite a bit on eBay. They should be considered as additions to this list.

  186. Amber says:

    some people dont no the diference between USED, SEALED and WITH A BOX…
    sealed never been used is ultimately rare..
    used , and games still with the box lose their value once been played or opened. 9/10 of their value. leaving…
    i hope to collect every pal game there is. ‘ sealed ” it
    will worth thousands in ten to twenty years
    does anyone have a console new?

  187. sye says:

    Seriously? These posts are recent, that is sad. You guys know you can EMULATE the crap out of any of these games, and throw them on your psp.. or whatever, very easy. I have all the games listed and have been playing them again and again. I had a friend get them and dump them on a psp for me.

  188. Liam says:

    OF COURSE PEOPLE KNOW YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM FOR FREE! Oh, and you don’t emulate a game, you emulate a console/system… The game is a rom played on an emulator.

    But, you “roms” are worth…

    NOTHING.

    Where as a sealed copy of Zelda: A Link To The Past is probably worth… £1000? I saw Zelda Major’s Mask (sealed) make £1200 only 2 weeks ago!

    Yes, people know they can play them for free, and the chances are most of us do… BUT make no mistake, theres nothing like playing on the original hardware! Something else to be thought about is a “colector” pays £££££££ for fairland pottery and the like… so whats wrong with collecting computer games and systems? I have for afew years now!

    My advice is; try it… you may like it!

  189. Andrew says:

    Hi I have a lot of snes games here don’t know if any are of worth of any value but here they are as i have them:

    1. Zelda A Link To The Past 2. Mortal Kombat 3 3. The Lion King 4. Mega Man X 5. Super Mario World 2 Yoshi’s Island 6. Pac-Man 2 The New Adventure 7. Sim City 8. Demons Crest 9. College Football and 10.(THIS ONE IS MY MOST PRIZED AND CHERISHED OF ALL) FINAL FANTASY: MYSTIC QUEST. If anyone want to contact me and talk about them or want to buy or anything just email me or go to myspace and look me up my names the same as my email.

  191. MFGreth says:

    I’m surprised Umihara Kawase for Super Famicom isn’t listed, ever since it became popular for collectors and retro game lovers, the price for a loose copy now runs anywhere from 70-110$, and a complete copy with packaging goes from 100-250$

  192. nomad says:

    I got FF3 for sale, loose copy, found it at a yard sale, no box but pretty good to great condition!!! EMAIL ME!!!

    Have you seen that original 1990 poster that guy found in his attic?
    I found it on eBay – search for “Dragons Lair Poster” it’s an amazing find.

  207. Pete says:

    I saw Ninja Gaiden Trilogy in a Trade N’Play video game store and it was $89.99. I was considering purchasing it but I already own the first 3 on NES so I wasn’t sure it was worth paying that much for supposed “enhanced” graphics, although the password feature would come in handy. I could trade some unwanted games in for store credit and bring the price down a bit (not much probably because these stores give you crap for used games). Anybody know if it’s worth it as far as gameplay?

  208. Damion says:

    I’ve come across a few copies of Super 7 in 1 and was wondering…how much are these going for now a days?

  209. Brandon says:

    @Jeff Those games are worth like $20 for all of them.

    @Pete The gameplay isnt worth $90. No way. Plus $90 is a ripoff for a cart only of that game anyway.

    @Damion What the heck is Super 7 in 1? Cuz it is definitely not a Super Nintendo game.

    Looking back at my post in this webpage in March, 2010, I can’t believe that I was right about the prices increasing.

    So my hypothesis was correct. Rumors of highly desired games like Earthbound being unavailable on the VC does increase prices.

    Thanks

  215. Sam Hicks says:

    The PAL version of Xandra’s Big Adventure, “Whirlo”, should be on this list.

  216. AdumUp says:

    Does anyone know what a sealed copy of SNES Final Fantasy III would be worth ???

    I just picked it up today for free ……………….

  218. FF Fan says:

    I played a game quite similar to Final Fantasy 3 and 5. Same weapons, air ship, boat and submarine. But you also got a few monster like creatures on your team and you could choose which helped you in battle and you fed them weapons to get them to grow or ‘level’ up. I thought it was lufia but I played it a few seconds and didnt think it was, if you can figure out what game it is please let me know at my email- brannan.christopher1991@gmail.com

  219. FF Fan says:

    It was on the SNES

  220. Anthony Loft says:

    So I just recently purchased a Super Metroid: special edition game for super nintendo. Does anybody know how rare this game is???? Or what it might be worth???? I would appreciate any feedback.
    Thanks,
    Tony

  221. Brendan says:

    I’m about to sell off a part of my SNES collection here in the next couple weeks on eBay. The games are as follows:

    Super Mario RPG
    Super Metroid
    Knights of The Round
    Killer Instinct
    Mortal Kombat
    Zombies Ate My Neighbors
    Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest
    Final Fantasy II
    Final Fantasy III
    Megaman X
    Megaman X2 (which I cannot make work for some reason)
    Starfox

    …a couple others I can’t remember off hand.
    I just wish I could get Megaman X2 to work. I cleaned it thoroughly, and by thoroughly I mean I took the cartridge apart and cleaned the contact pins VERY well, and even lightly polished them with a tiny pinch of steel wool so they shine like new pennies.

    Didn’t help though… you turn it on, it loads the copyright screen and the Capcom screen, plays the little Capcom “tune” and fades to black like it’s going to load the title screen/main menu and it just stays black. I’m thinking one of the chips in it has failed.
    I’m no expert though…

  222. Scott says:

    Looking back at this list a few months later, I am surprised that there is no Final Fight Guy on this list. The cartridge by itself sells for $40-60 and with a box, it sells for $300 (once, the box sold for $250). It may be the most valuable Final Fight game on the system since it was just a Blockbuster exclusive.

    The other game I would like to bring up is Hagane: The Final Conflict. This game gets no mention at all when it comes to rare SNES games. It is a rare game which many SNES owners have never heard of. But it was made by Hudson Soft and was the SNES’s answer to the Genesis’s Shinobi. On a pricing guide at videogamepricecharts it is currently listed for around $100 (as of 3/8/11). And finding it online is almost next to impossible (there are only two listings right now with one being for the slightly cheaper SF cart). I know because I have two copies and am looking to get rid of one but have trouble doing so. Update the list if you can.

  223. Brendan says:

    I have a shot to buy a copy of Final Fight Guy (cartridge only) for $35 in pretty much perfect shape… is it worth it?
    I posted this before, but for some reason it’s not showing up at the moment.

  238. Dave says:

    I can’t believe it some guy just sold me Zelda: Link to the Past, Final Fantasy 2, Final Fantasy 3 and Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest…. All complete in box for $100. Boxes look almost brand new. He must not have known what he had.

    That has to be close to one of the best deals I’ve ever made.

  239. Tom says:

    You’re missing a big one. PAL version of Terraningma! This never saw a US release. While they’re not truly sequels, they might as well be in this order. Soul Blazer, Illusion of Gaia, and then Terranigma. The Latter two saw US releases, and are popular as well. If you see it in NTSC version, its a replica. Either a fake, or the PAL version was put into an NTSC cartridge, and a new sticker made. Check ebay to see the ridiculous BIN prices!

  240. TheSpoonyBard says:

    How about the NTSC release of Hagane? This is such an overlooked game rarity and value wise. Like FF:Guy it was a US BB video exclusive release. I recently acquired a copy of it. It’s not the best game, but I barely ever see it on any rarity lists…Just saying.

  241. Norman says:

    I’ve had a S/NES when I was a little boy and used to play every day- that drove my parents crazy. When it bored me it got lost. Some years later I found an emulator for PC and played my old classics again – like Street Fighter, Kirby and Final Fantasy! But the simulator does not work any more with WIN7.
    Anybody know a current version of a snes simulator?

  243. Ultraboy94 says:

    Damn. I live in a PAL region and found Secret of Evermore fully boxed in a Game store about 6 months ago for £29.99 ($43.06 converted). I didn’t have the money for it, which sucks.

  244. Utonium says:

    Winter Gold – 1996, producer Funcom (FX Skiing)

    European release only.

    Nobody told a thing about this game yet.

    Well, i’ ve seen it for auction only two times on ebay.
    The 1st one i missed it.
    On the 2nd apperance, just four years later…, i managed to win the auction !

    It took five years looking for this title and now i finally have it !

    Does anyone have or had this cartridge ?

    Btw, its not for sale.

  245. Setsae says:

    I remember one of my one old bud lent me Dracula X: vampire kiss, during the snes era…
    Must have sold his game system and his whole library a long while ago. I wonder if he got a fair prize of his print. I’m dead sure he didn’t, because internet wasn’t that accessible until late ’90 ^^
    Transactions were very subjective due to lacks of information. One could have found a very valuable title complete with box and instruction booklet on flea market for a misery because of that.

    I’m laughing at what would be my friend’s hypothetical reaction, knowing it’s now worth 250$ :p

    I have a working final fantasy 3 that I’m thinking of selling. It doesn’t have the box and is in used condition but plays and saves without a problem. How much would it be worth to someone?

  255. donenzonne says:

    i own Rendering Ranger R2

  256. crazyharry'svideogamestore says:

    I have
    Aero fighters
    breath of fire 2
    Bubble bobble 1&2
    Chrono trigger
    Finalfantasy 2

  257. Anthony says:

    Makes me feel pretty good that I own a handful of these classics, Ogre Battle, Secret of Mana, Breath of Fire 1 and 2, and Chrono Trigger. I am not a collector, I just love the best :D

  258. Fat Candy says:

    donenzonne, YOU ARE DEAD TO ME!

  259. Oldgamer says:

    @ Fat Candy, Lolol. Hmmmm, now how are you going to persuade donenzonne to sell you that very hard to find rendering ranger r2? You’ve probably been looking for a copy for forever and someone else here jut happens to have it.

  260. GMAN says:

    I wouldnt call these games the rarest, perhaps earthbound, but on all your pages your missing tons of games that are far more valuable, seems you just looked on ebay and random fan sites to find your info, amatuer at best, no i will not utter the games as a collector the worth goes down but as you guys buy these ones listed here instead, the real game collectors are safe.

  261. budds says:

    I have Secret of Evermore, Secret of Mana, Terranigma, Illusion of time, Lost Vikings, Mystic Quest, Prince of Persia 2, Super Mario All Stars, Super Mario World, Yoshi’s island, Super Star Wars, Castlevania lv, all boxed with books and posters, have various other loose catridges, does anyone think there worth anything?

  262. KoolioMcB says:

    As an increasingly hardcore English (PAL) snes collector I feel there is one MAJOR title you missed from rare/expensive PAL games and that is super bomberman 3 it never got a US release and a very belated Europe release and demands £75-150, also in a response to a comment i noticed above the Dragonball Z games only got released in France and are very rare and demand a high price.

    PS.How much is R-type 3 in the US its about £100 here

  263. Oldgamer says:

    KoolioMcB, you can get R-type 3 for about $50 in the U.S. That’s for just the cartridge though. I haven’t seen a sealed copy in, well, a very very long time.

  264. Rich says:

    You might want to add Hagane, loose cart goes for $300+ and $500 CIB. Metal Warriors loose also goes for $100 and Space Megaforce goes for $50+ loose. Your list is very outdated.

  265. budds says:

    Also have Sim City and Incantation sealed

  266. john says:

    one of the rarest games i have ever seen was Techno Secret of the Stars. I have only really seen physical cart for this game on the SNES. good story-line, descent graphics, and a good difficulty level. The only one i saw was one i rented when i was a kid, (I’m 29 now).

  267. Thomas says:

    I recently got a sealed copy of Super Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi, and I’d like somebody to tell me what’s the most money I can get for it. Please Let me know if you can find someone who’s interested in buying it, and lives in or near Fresno County California. My name is Thomas Olson, and I really hope I can sell this game for a lot of money.

  268. Chris Pack says:

    I have a Super Mario All-Stars game I’d have thought it would have made the list.

  269. Bz says:

    Jeremy, you can list them here. Someone might want and could arrange a Paypal purchase. eBay is great if you want a lot of people to see what you have, but their fees add up. If you don’t mind fees, then ebay’s good. It also depends on what you actually have.

  270. -Majin- says:

    Now that Earthbound will be released on the virtual console will the price start to cool off?

  271. bruce82 says:

    where is soul blazer pal scn version?

  272. PhinsfanP1 says:

    Super mario rpg is amazing, So glad i still own it.

  273. rick says:

    Funny thing is i own Lufia 2 rise of the sinistrals. and didnt even know it was a rare game.

  274. Miles says:

    What about Mega Man X2? It’s like $100 a cartridge.

  275. David says:

    My father owns a gamestop and a guy came in with a box of 120 Turok: Rage Wars gray cartridge. he found it in a storage lot and traded them in to us. So far we sold over 60 of them on ebay for 100$ each. we still have more lol.

    also here is a link of some games i found in a tiny box in my basement saying “loose games”
    I also found Final Fantasy I, II, and III in box well taken care of by my awesome father

  276. Gamer says:

    ANYBODY selling a megaman x3 for snes????? please let me know,,, insanely expensive on ebay or amazon :(

  279. Pustulator says:

    If someone still search for Wild Guns SNES NTSC I have one and i’m willing to sell it! Have Ogre Battle : The March of the Black Queen too. Just write down if you want to negociate.

  280. that sad guy says:

    Before I fully knew it’s worth, I sold a copy of secret of mana for $15. I bought it for $5 and it had everything included except for the map :’( I looked it up more after i sold it and felt sick about it. Not because i could have got more money. But because I sold it to a vintage game collector and now I know he ripped me off. It’s sad how our world’s morals are deteriorating.

  281. ScubaDiverPicker says:

    Where’s Wild Guns? Ninja Warriors? Swat Kats? Those are all rare especially Wild Guns

  282. Jon Harding says:

    I see more Wild Guns and Metal Warriors then I do Swat Kats. I would add Swat Kats to the rare game list and I find R-Type lll hard to find on ebay.

  283. Jon Harding says:

    I would add SWAT KATS to the rare list. I see less of those on Ebay then I do Metal Warriors, Wild Guns, Evo or any of these so called rare games.

    I would also add R-type lll I find it difficult to find that game even on ebay. Seems there is only 1-3 copies at a time online. Way less then wild guns, metal warriors etc.
    Cheers
    Jon

  284. Crabmaster2000 says:

    The last 2 MBR/SR carts that sold went for $1400 just loose. That price need an update for sure. I was the seller of one of those so I can provide some proof if needed. Just PM me on racketboy here if you need any more info.

  285. Crabmaster2000 says:

    I can also help elaborate a bit on the description for those as I think its a bit inaccurate.

  286. Brendan says:

    Hi racketboy one rare pal game is missing from this list I don’t think anyone has mentioned X-Zone yet so expensive boxed it competes with quiet a few on the list I’ve seen it over $700

  287. racketboy says:

    Thanks, Crabmaster2000
    Just emailed you :)

  288. Brendan says:

    A boxed pal x-zone sold on eBay Uk last weekend for $1100

  289. Jack says:

    Anybody that pays the kinda money they try to rip you off for these games is a f^king moron

  290. Gerald says:

    Hi there, what about the black box version of Final Fight Guy? It looks to be the rarest box/manual/game combo on the SNES. Here is a link to a post on NA that has an image of the game’s contents. http://www.nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=29&threadid=53931

  291. Patrick BBE says:

    I would gladly pay high sums the money to get Metal Warriors. A game with robots is always fun.

  292. Michael says:

    How much is a Gold Zelda 2 Adventure of Link worth?

  293. FreelancerOmega says:

    Does anyone know the value of a complete PAL Super Mario All-Stars Black label?

  294. weekend_warrior says:

    How about Space Megaforce? That’s a pretty rare one.

  295. Mathias says:

    You should put “x-zone” on the pal list, it’s probably one of the rarest ones out there. SCN only, and eBay prizes are insane

  296. shannon matthews says:

    Donkey Kong Country 3 out of box $40 factory condition $50 and up! DKC3 is the rarest one

  297. GlobalGamer says:
