A rare, sealed copy of Nintendo's original 'The Legend of Zelda' video game is up for auction and will sell for more than a princely sum when the auction ends later this month.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions is auctioning off the never-before-opened game, which has a current bid of $115,000.

It is one of many sought-after vintage games on offer in Heritage's first video games auction, which runs until July 10.

The copy of Zelda has a grade of 9.0 from Wata Games, a game grading company and is placed inside a plastic container.

This particular version is a No Rev-A Round SOQ model, which was produced in late 1987, before being replaced by the Rev-A variant in 1988.

Wata notes that early Nintendo production games had cartridges made with five screws, but were later switched to a new three-screw design.

'To denote it, Nintendo decided it was necessary to change the box, as well as the cart label and other pieces contained with the game,' marking it with a Rev-A change, Wata wrote in a statement on its website.
