dragon quest font


recreation of the pixel font from enix's dragon quest (1986) on the NES, later released in borth america as dragon warrior (1989) (but with a different main font, obviously).

in the game's tileset, the dakuten and handakuten for the hiragana and katakana are separate tiles (with one exception), and positioned in the line above the character they relate to. In this recreation, these characters are pre-combined into a single glyph.

apart from these changes, only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
