    Highest Graded Copy of Donkey Kong Country Ever Offered at Public Auction

    Donkey Kong Country - Wata 9.8 A++ Sealed [Made in Japan, First Production], SNES Nintendo 1994 USA. With the way this catalog is going, the "9" and "8" keys on our keyboards are at risk of losing their labels! Here we are with another first-time offer of essentially the most highly desirable grade that Wata awards (practically mythical "10.0" aside, of course) for a title. We've only offered five copies of the first game in the Donkey Kong Country series to date, and the highest graded copy we have offered until now was a Wata 9.4 A+ copy that sold for a record-shattering price of $24,000. However, the grade certainly isn't the only reason to watch out for this lot. Not only is it the third-best selling game for the Super Nintendo, it also holds the record of the fastest selling video game to-date. This is one of the biggest key titles for the console, and could very well be the candidate for a Super Nintendo collector's centerpiece.
