An extremely rare video game and sought after by collectors now adorns the shelves of a store in the city.

Last Level Games in St Benedicts Street recently received a copy of Conker’s Bad Fur Day, a 2001 platform game for the Nintendo 64.

The adult game follows a little squirrel called Conker who tries to get home to his girlfriend and the cartridge is on sale for £ 130.

It can be as high as £ 250 on eBay when the box and instructions are included.

Ed Jackman, 32, owner of Last Level Games, said: “I was surprised to see it and I’m excited when rare games arrive because I’m a collector myself.

“It was from a local collector who had a big discount.”

The game store has been on its current premises for three and a half years after Mr Jackman closed a nearby store of the same name a decade ago to pursue other careers.

But having returned to his true passion, the gaming guru has encountered all kinds of weird and wonderful titles as collectors trade in their games for store credits or cash.

“It all depends on what people bring into the store when people are emptying out their attics,” Mr. Jackman said.

Explaining why Conker’s Bad Fur Day is so rare, he added, “I guess the impression count was probably low when it came out and maybe it wasn’t that popular at first, so it doesn’t. is not sold too many copies.

“The copies in circulation these days are sought after and valuable. It’s been popular and a few have debated whether to buy it, but it’s a pretty steep price for just one game.”

Mr Jackman thinks it is only a matter of time before the game is taken after payday.

“As with vinyl, people still appreciate its retro, nostalgic feel,” continued Mr. Jackman.

“There is so much digital now that people love old CD and DVD games.”

Last Level Games was originally called the Norwich Spacestation after it was founded by Andrew Cherry as a sci-fi store in 2004.

“It sold for just over £ 1,000”

Last Level Games has received many collectibles to light up the eyes of gamers in the city.

  • Power Drive: This 1994 Game Gear racing video game sold for over £ 1,000 in Last Level Games. Mr Jackman said the “extremely low circulation” makes it hard to find. He thinks it would cost at least double or triple the price he sold it for.
  • Panzer Dragoon: Released by Sega in the 1990s, Last Level Games got their hands on a copy of the Sega Saturn console which sold for £ 300. “We had someone on the back of a newspaper article,” Mr. Jackman said.
  • Maximum Carnage: This Spiderman and Venom game for Mega Drive grossed £ 150 at the St Benedict’s Street store. The game was developed by Software Creations and published by Acclaim Entertainment and its subsidiary LJN in 1994.
