Hi everyone,

Last Fighter Twin, Great Battle 3, Great Battle 4, and Great Battle 5 have all had their patches updated. LFT's update re-adds the cursor to the title screen and translates the 2P character select screen. GB3's update fixes shops when playing with two players. GB4's update fixes an AI bug that makes some fights harder than they should be. GB5's update fixes a timing issue that caused only half of the title screen to render on hardware and more-accurate emulators.

On this day it's been 19 years since AGTP first opened its doors on PCPages, and we have five releases to celebrate!

A couple of months ago I was talking with TheMajinZenki and a few other folks about the English release of Super Robot Wars OG: The Moon Dwellers, and thinking that it might be nice for folks to have a little context for some of the more esoteric pulls from Banpresto's back catalog. We got it in our heads that it'd be a fun idea to do all five primary entries in Banpresto's old The Great Battle series, giving people a glimpse into the history of Fighter Roar, Compatible Kaiser, Dark Brain, and the rest, and we figured that since they were relatively small games individually that it wouldn't be all that tough to do. The job wasn't without challenges, but here we have it!

I'll be posting further updates about the states of various projects tomorrow, but for now I want to give these five games the spotlight. Enjoy!
