zelda no densetsu: the hyrule fantasy (FDS) font


recreation of the pixel font from nintendo's original zelda no densetsu: the hyrule fantasy (1986) on the famicom disk system.

this font includes a full set of katakana characters. In the game's tileset, the dakuten and handakuten are separate tiles, positioned in the line above the character they relate to. in this recreation, these characters are pre-combined into a single glyph.

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