One of the most expensive Star Wars games you could have in your collection is the Japanese version of SNES classic Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

If you just have the loose cart on its own you’ll be able to get almost £300 for it (£296.83).

But if you have a new version of this beloved Star Wars game you’ll be able to sell it for over £900.

Similarily, the Japanese version of Star Wars: Empire Strikes back for the Famicom (which is the Japanese NES) sells for a tidy sum too.

A brand new copy can fetch over £400.

In terms of more newer releases, the premium edition of Star Wars Episode 1 Racer for the Nintendo Switch can sell for over £150 if you have a brand new copy.

While if you have a new version of the premium edition of Star Wars Shadows of the Empire for the Nintendo 64 you’ll be able to get a whopping £737.

Also, bear in mind that depending on the region a game was released in (i.e Japan, America, Europe) it may be worth more than versions of the same game that hit shelves in other countries.
