tiger road / tora e no michi (pc engine) font


recreation of the pixel font from capcom/victor musical industries' tiger road (aka tora e no michi, 1990) on the pc engine/turbografx-16.

the font includes an almost complete set of hiragana and katakana characters. in the tile set, the dakuten and handakuten are separate tiles, positioned in a line above their respective character. in this recreation, characters that use them are pre-combined into a single glyph.

only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
