Everyone at Nintendo Life has probably been in and around the games industry for at least a few hundred years… and yet there are still things that surprise us every day.
Today’s surprise was to find out that one of the holy grails for 3DS collectors is a game called Barbie Groom and Glam Pups where you, barbie, groom and glam pups. It’s very self-explanatory, really.
However, since the game was only released in the North American market in Canada and not in the US, it’s a bit hard to come by. It was also released in Europe and Australia but for this one collector they need it for their overall North American collection…which is a shame because the PAL version is sold for goneyy fewer.
In the comments, the collector says he spent $1,600 on the game – “It was like $700 a few years ago,” they add. “Should have bought it then.”
Even if you check the latest sales for the game on pricecharting.com, it looks like Galdius paid over the usual price – assuming the massive $250 jump to $2,642 is the one Galdius bought.
Unfortunately, Galdius’ collection will soon be incomplete again as the new version of Andro Dunos 2 arrives on the 3DS, although it seems nobody really knows when their copies will arrive.
Here is Galdius’ collection of 418 3DS games before counting Andro Dunos 2 and the Barbie game:
How big is your 3DS collection? Do you have games worth over $500? Let us know in the comments.
