Update By: Gideon Zhi

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

A couple of months ago Gideon 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. They 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 it got done!

Further updates about the states of various projects will be posted to the AGTP website tomorrow.

Congrats on the releases! It's great to see a chunk of games released all at once like this.

Woah, five different games at the same time.  Is that a record on at least RHDN?

So, great job on these, but, uh, is anyone else seeing a graphics glitch with the logo on the title screen of the the 5th one?

NH579 - I'm seeing the same thing on SNES9x for Windows.

Have you reported this issue yet?

good job guys but i'm i think 2 and 3 are the worse out of the whole five due to passwords not saving when you game over.

Sounds like a great opportunity for a quick rom hack :)

Not to be that guy, but there's totally a "Great Battle VI" for the PS1 too. So not quite as comprehensive as advertised.

There's also a Gaiden (for Game Boy) and Gaiden 2 (for Super Famicom).
(oh, I see now Gideon did say "primary" so presumably he's aware of the Gaidens and did not choose to work on them for this event. Which is certainly fine.)

There's a PSP Great Battle as well, and the various compatihero sports/games spinoffs (Battle Dodgeball, Battle Racers, Battle Pinball, etc) also fall under the umbrella. The intent here was for five primary entries on the SFC.

You could argue there's also Great Battle Cyber for the Famicom, but I doubt it's all that interesting, though I guess it doesn't look too bad at a first glance. Still, well done with the SFC games. :)

Updated Last Fighter Twin and GB5 to v1.2. The patches are live on AGTP and have been submitted to RHDN, should go through the submission review process probably within 24-48 hours.
