the battle of olympus / olympus no tatakai font


recreation of the primary pixel font from infinity/imagineer's the battle of olympus (1988) on the NES.

this font combines the japanese (which lacks a latin lowercase) and north american/european release fonts. it includes a full set of hiragana and 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.
