You can now Buy Shares of a Nintendo World Championships Cartridge

A new investment scheme has launched via Otis that allows people to buy shares of the 8.5 Wata (a grading score used for video game collecting) Nintendo World Championships Grey Cartridge for $10. The shares will fluctuate in value just like stock, with shareholders waiting for their prices to increase before potentially considering to trade them in, hopefully for a sizeable profit.

The Nintendo World Championships 1990 cartridge is viewed as the rarest and most valuable NES games ever released, and now you can own a piece of one of the iconic cartridges.

Otis is an investment platform that specializes in cultural assets, and it is the first fractionalized platform to offer the prized Nintendo game, valued at $211,300. The cartridge is considered by many to be the holy grail of video game collecting, and a lower grade Wata 8.0 copy of the game sold for $180,000 earlier this month.

The cartridges were given to winners of the Nintendo World Championships in 1990, a touring event that had players compete in popular games. The cartridge itself was used in competition and features a remix of Rad Racer, Super Mario Bros., and Tetris for a single high score. More copies went to the winners of a Nintendo Power magazine contest.

Given the limited number of Nintendo World Championships cartridges that are out in the wild, collectors and game fans alike are often on the lookout for them. That’s why it was particularly surprising when one turned up in a box of traded-in NES games at a used game store in Seattle, Washington back in 2019.

The store paid $13,000 for the Nintendo World Championship 1990 cartridge after judging the condition of the item and conducting some research. It was reported at the time that the seller happily accepted the offer, though the resale price and the identity of the second buyer were both kept secret.
