:switch: Tiny Barbarian DX - $21.99 via Target.com.

 

Save an additional 5% and free 2 day shipping with REDcard. You can price match in-store, which may be wise just to make absolutely sure you get a first print run with the extras.

 

The game comes with full color instruction booklet and a keychain with pouch:

Tempting since this is not getting another run more than likely.  That's causing me to pick up games I wouldn't not have normally...

Only the first release comes with the bonus stuff. Its already been re-released without. Its a gamble if this one comes with those bonus.

I recommend picking it up for this price with or without the bonus items. Tiny Barbarian is a lot of fun and a real hidden gem IMO.

none near me.. so $6 shipping kills it.

Bestbuy has it for $23 after GCU, tempting. (in store)

Get a REDcard! All you need is a checking account and you can apply online. You can save 5% and get free 2 day shipping from Target.com.

 

Alternative would be to have Best Buy price match the $21.99 price.

Definitely not worth doing all that to save a $1 if Best Buy has it for $23 after GCU.

And besides, i've been in a target like 2-3 times in my life. 

No desire to get a CC either, I pay things off not on credit..

Target has a debit red card too.

For this single item? Certainly not worth the trouble, no. To save 5% now and for everything else Target sells, including on top of price matches I'd say it's worth the trouble.

Amen to that I don't mess with credit cards either. That's why I have the Target REDcard debit card as Mikey said so it just comes out of my bank account instead. No credit line or anything just linked with to your checking account.

 

As a homer for Target I can't wrap my head around where you shop if you aren't going to Target but to each their own. For video games I buy 90%+ of them at Best Buy but for that rare price glitch or rare deal better than GCU it's nice to save that extra 5%. I buy pretty much everything else there too so that helps.

The art style looks like Has Been Heroes... how similar is the game play? I bought that game at launch but looking to sell or trade it now, so not sure of the replay value here.

I didn't know they had a debit card. I'll have to look into getting one now, Target is dangerously close to my house and I go often.

The artwork was done by Susumu Matsushita who is best known for his artwork in Famitsu magazine as well as doing the artwork for the Adventure Island games. The game itself has a 2D retro look and reminds me of something along the lines of the DOS game Jill of the Jungle. 

 

I personally do not like Has-Been Heroes at all and couldn't get into the game and ended up trading my copy in shortly after buying it. Tiny Barbarians DX is a completely different game though, it is a side-scrolling action platformer.

Nice!

 

I'm the first to admit Target isn't great for game deals, even in an alternate universe where Best Buy's GCU didn't exist. But yeah, 5% is good for everything else so might as well if you're a frequent shopper. You can do it in-store with a blank check (who has these?) or online with bank account info. Apply for REDcard Online

Thanks for the heads up! I will have to apply online, definitely don't mess with checks anymore if I don't have to.

Pretty much target: cheaper prices at walmart/amazon/bestbuy/costco/anywhere else. Outside of a clearance for Vita games once, i just stay away from target.

Man, I miss those Vita clearance deals at Target.
