These were clearanced games that got pulled for the holidays that got repackaged with a collectable stylus that got a new UPC stickered over the original barcodes. They were 19.99 but they are being marked and sold for 9.99 for a limited time.

 

I grabbed a copy of Tetris Axis since I missed the clearance price over the summer.

As always, Target clearance is YMMV, please note that in the title.

That's a great deal for Shadow Wars if it's everywhere.  I've heard good things about Shinobi as well so maybe I'll stop there tomorrow.

I saw these too at my local target in VA. Thought about posting it but slipped my mind last night, nor did I have a picture. Good deals. I think my target only had one shinobi, one tetris, and two of the shadow wars. I think there was also one for the lego harry potter, but sadly I passed. I already have tetris and shinobi, and don't know too much about shadow wars. Wishing I would have picked it up now.

It's like X-COM (turn based strategy and produced by the co-creator of X-COM) but in Ghost Recon clothing.  One of those that really flew under the radar because you assume it's just another terrible handheld port of a console game.

The OP is saying these items are repackaged former clearance items, not currently on clearance, and that they are on sale for a limited time.  I know the games he is referring to - all Targets I've been to have them in the repackage with the stylus, I just wasn't aware they were currently on sale for $9.99.

I'm not 100% confident that ALL Targets had these over the holidays.  I never noticed these in my store (Sioux Falls, SD) and was just in the gaming section scouring the new 3DS and PS3 clearance/overflow items this morning and did not see any, either.  Perhaps this is somewhat a regional trend - who knows?

Usually in the 3DS aisle on the shelf at the bottom.

Actually I saw these well before December, like last Spring or earlier.  And they occasionally go on sale - last time I remembered it being for $14.99.  And like the person above me said, just check the bottom of the 3DS aise, and I've also seen them at the bottom of the Wii aisle and on an endcap.

I found them at mine back in electronics, on one of the endcaps facing the wall (where they usually have demo consoles set up). They were on the bottom of the endcap, almost hidden.

Given the age of the titles in the OP, I would believe that these repackages have been around for a while.  However, I can say with certainty that they have not been available at either of the Target stores in my city (both of which get significant traffic, given the next-closest stores in the region) in recent memory.  I do seem to recall seeing some Shinobi + stylus combos sometime in late 2012 or early 2013, but it was limited to just that title and they are long since gone.

All 3 were in the main aisle case with the rest of the 3DS games at my target. Thanks OP.

Does anyone know which game has the Yoshi stylus?

Thanks OP, grabbed a copy of Tetris. I never saw these bundles during the holidays, and now the endcap is full of them. If they go on clearance I might just get Shinobi as well.

Thanks OP, picked up the three games mentioned, would've never known they were on sale, no signs or markings of any kind. My store had several other games, nothing of note.  

 

Might be worth noting that the styluses are Mario themed or at least they were at the store i was in. I got Mario, Luigi, and Peach. Didn't see Yoshi or i would have probably got him too!

All the local store had was five copies of Shinobi with the Luigi stylus.

I saw the Shinobi w/ stylus package a few weeks ago for $20...it would be $10 now right? I would think they would sell them for $10 until they sell out hmm

These have been around for a while, but I did grab the Tetris, GR, and Shinobi bundles from my Target a few weeks ago. Haven't played any of the games but my 3ds is starting to get a bad backlog of its own

Where are these located at in-store?

Clearance games usually located at the extreme end of the video game section adjacent to the 3DS section/Vita handheld games where they have pc games, game guides, budget software. This is the typical layout of stores at least in Texas. Sometimes the clearance stuff is at the end of the aisle(s).

These are temporary price cuts though, and not clearance.

I've seen these bundles mainly on the bottom shelf below the 3DS games. Sometimes they are on endcaps, again on the bottom shelf.

For some reason read this as a bundle of all three games for $9.99... not worth it individually.

Which game came with the Peach stylus? I got Tetris, Ghost Recon, and Shinobi; which only came with the Mario and Luigi Styluses.

Hmm I spot a Tetris and Ghost Recon at my store, but I want Shinobi. I'll probably just look for it at Big Lots. Are the other 2 games worth it for $10? I've been trying to build a strong library for my 3DS but I don't want to start adding shitty games if I don't need to.

Assuming it's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars you're talking about, I've only ever heard good things about it. It's supposed to be a strategy/tactics game, and the designer was the same guy who worked on the original X-COM game. Can't provide any first-hand opinions as mine is still in the backlog, but the positive word-of-mouth made me buy it for later.

Do it. Shadow wars was my first 3ds game and loved it, an I just got a 3ds like a month ago...an my backlog for that is at like 15 now at least thanks to best buy. Oh and the peach stylus comes in a ds game, like something pink or nintendogs or some girly ds game. Have not spotted the yoshi tho...
