The mad scientist villain from the Mega Man series lives in a pretty swanky castle, according to the Movoto Real Estate Blog.

Movoto did some mad science of its own to figure out the size and location of Wily’s home. Their property experts used some clues to figure out that the castle is probably outside of Tokyo. Movoto then used trigonometry or black magic (and really, what’s the difference) to determine the square footage. They put all of that together to determine that the going rate for an evil techocastle is around $113 million.

We’ve embedded an infographic that shows exactly how Movoto came to that figure below, and don’t forget to check out the blog’s other gaming-related real-estate estimates.
