It’s always interesting to see how much fictional properties could be worth if they existed in the real world. The folks over at Movoto Real Estate have taken a crack at Princess Peach’s castle and oh my, let’s just say Daisy should be very jealous.

    Yes we do try to make our castles the highest qualities!

    • zerooooo

      Lmao somehow this made my day

      • Shigeru Miyamoto

        We are glad it made your day! That is what Nintendo is out to do!

        Thanks much!

        • Satoru Iwata

          Thank you very much. That’s it Miyamoto-san! It is english lessons for you! I sorry for Miyamoto-san bad engrish.

          Thank you for supporting Nintendo and it’s products!

    • Satoru Iwata

      I agree, Miyamoto-san. We put so much quality into this, that now you know where our money goes, rather than adding that money to making our products more new and fresh, we agree that playing it safe is what Nintendo stands for. Fans seem to be fine with this judging by sales, so there is no reason to change our stance in the gaming industry.

      Thank you for Wii U Daily for supporting Nintendo of it’s fame & glory. As for the great fans of Nintendo, please continue to buy your products, because a castle like the one shown in this article, don’t come very cheap, especially on maintenance.

      Thank you all and please continue your support of Nintendo.

    • bizzy gie

          • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

            This is Mozart talking to you. Do you believe me ?

          • sure do! Did you like the sound of any concerts you went to recently? Were any of them really beautiful?

            crap that was beethoven that was deaf…

          • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

            I sure did. I’m the best !

            Beethoven composed and conducted his 9th symphony while he was almost completely deaf, can you believe it ?

          • You must really be mozart!

        • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

          Is Bill Trinen translating your comments in english ?

          • Shigeru Miyamoto

            No, I have learned English perfectly. I had no more use for Bill so we at Nintendo though was right. We disposed of him.

            Thank you for your support.

  • Ace J

    didn’t wiiudaily already do an article on this?

    • D Moness

      I think that was for a zelda castle

    • sdmac200600

      No it was Hyrule castle.

      • Ace J

        ohhhh ok alrighty then

  • gamesplayswill

    Oh peachy, we all love you!

  • Linskarmo

    I was just in Oslo a few weeks ago! I should have looked for her castle. πŸ˜‰
    But the size of Hogwarts? That’s just huge.

  • Jonny5

    At that price, I will take 2!

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Forgot that it got a racing track just at its backyard (Mario Kart 64 shows this)?

    • Satoru Iwata

      As the westerner’s say. “Pictures or it never happened.”

      Thank you for supporting Nintendo and it’s products.

  • Andreas Sunde

    That is not what I think of when I think Oslo… But after checking the map, sure, it could be there.
    I would place it a bit to the north west, though.

    • Nintedward

      Oslo ? …. We all know Peaches castle is in Sicily!

      Oslo aint no long and sunny days… it’s winter for 8 months of the year…. lol

      • Magnus Eriksson

        If Princess Peach was norwegian her name would be Pinsesse Fersken. πŸ™‚

        • Nintedward

          Kinda sounds like Foreskin lol!

          • Satoru Iwata

            Please understand, Princess Peach wears a pink floor-length dress for a reason. She is very self-conscious about foreskin jokes. Please refrain from offending her highness.

            Thank you and support Nintendo and it’s products.

  • Ducked

    What does this have to do with the Wii U?

    • gamesplayswill

      To be fair, I think this as well.
      It’s called WiiUDaily for a reason, not Nintendo Daily! XD

      • Ducked

        I know right seriously

    • Davidson

      Slow news day.

      • Ducked

        haha yeah

    • DereX

      This is not news and it has nothing to do with the Wii U… I want to know why Dungeons and Dragons online coop wasn’t released for Nintendo on the June 18th date. The other consoles got it right. The trailer on the eshop says JUNE 2013. Nobody cares about the appraisal of Peach’s castle.

      • Satoru Iwata

        You sound like a very bad Nintendo fan. Bad fan! No Nintendo for you! For christmas, I will send you Don Mattrick’s Sings Zynga’s Tune audio CD. It’s a great addition to anyones CD collection. These two fit perfectly together, both failures to the public eye. I recommend chapter 7 of the audio, Lies and Tribulations. It talks about Microsoft and its gulliable fanbase. I found it very touching and nearly shed a tear, and came close to performing the hara-kiri.

        I hope you learn lesson from this and never bite hand that feeds you. Thank you and continue to support our products!

        • Ducked

          You sound like a very bad troll. Actually, I’m not sure what to call you. How about a fanboy?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I wouldn’t call him so much as a troll. It’s easy to tell he’s just doing this for fun and obviously not many people are taking it that serious. If anything, he’s just being sarcastic. Funny is subjective so to each his/her own. I’ve seen worse. I say he does a pretty good job at being a troll without being a traditional one.

          • Guest

            Devil’s advocate so to speak. I haven’t bought a game since MH3U and I want to know when the next big game (any decent game) is going to be announced because all of the games on upcoming lists are TBD. That is when I turn to fan sites like Wii U daily.

          • Elem187

            He’s also racist.

          • Satoru Iwata

            I am very sorry that you are upset by Nintendo. If you were expecting low quality products and poor management, I would suggest moving to EA.

            Thank you for your support and always support Nintendo and its products.

  • All of a sudden I feel the urge to love Mario games again, now just find a way to get rid of that nasty Italian mustache plumber, then Peach will be mine as will her castle,I don’t think I need to work anymore then either, so plenty of time for videogames all day long.

  • brian

    Did they factor in the square footage of the basement area?

  • Zombie Boy

    Can’t we just squat there after Bowser kidnaps her again?

  • sdmac200600

    Wait, how much was Hyrule castle?

  • Tobias Naustdal

    oslo? why oslo? that area is completely flat! xD if you say that peach castle is placed in norway, i would rather say it’s located on the west coast of norway. not a completely flat place like oslo xD

  • The Clockwork Being

    No smash article. Sakurai did an interview recently

  • John Andalora

    Slow newsday, huh?

    • zerooooo

      Happends usually around here.

    • The Clockwork Being

      Weird I see some news that could be cover. I mean Sakurai(dev of SSB-SSB4 and Kirby) has recently made an interview that revealed important stuff on the next smash bros

  • Mochlum

    How much do the magical painting portals count for in that price?

  • XroyD


  • CEObrainz

    According to Vsauce3, one coin in Mario is equal to $79,000.

    Therefore Peach’s Castle would only cost 10,238 coins.

    • Leeroy

      I got way more than that in just about every mario game ive owned. mario must be really rich!

    • Adam Fox

      I have way over 1,000,000 in New Super Mario Bros 2 on 3DS……

  • Clel

    “It’s always interesting to see how much fictional properties could be worth if they existed in the real world.”

    YOU MEAN IT’S NOT REAL??? My life is a lie (along with the cake).

    • Satoru Iwata

      Please understand. It is very real.The cake lies, but the Sake does not. We at Nintendo, know this first hand.

  • Gabe Hoffman

    I loled at the Portal reference

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Do Bowser’s castle now πŸ˜€

  • Madmagican

    Well hot damn, Peach’s castle is almost worth 1 billion dollars
    Why can’t they afford better security?

  • Guest

    Really, Peach?
    Your loyal servants are going poor while you be livin’ it up, eh?
    Look what I live in, girl!

  • Shaise Mughal

    How about this? Peach moves somewhere where she is less likely to be kidnapped by bowser & is more likely to be kidnapped by someone else in Mario games, which then adds a twist to the storys, & then we can sell peaches castle & use some of the money to buy back rare. Results? A twist in Mario games & we’ve got rareware back! We’re all happy!
