1980’s Nintendo game sells for big bucks

(CNN) — A Nintendo game from the 1980’s sold in an online auction for $9,000.

The copy of Kid Icarus was unopened and sealed. The game was first released by Nintendo in 1987.

Heritage Auctions says it’s considered one of the hardest Nintendo system titles to find sealed.

Scott Amos recently found the game in the attic of his Nevada home. He says he’s splitting the money with his sister and taking their families to Disney World.
