clash at demonhead / dengeki big bang! (NES) font


recreation of the primary pixel font from vic tokai's clash at demonhead (aka dengeki big bang!, 1989) on the NES.

note that the game features two distinct exclamation marks ... the second/straight one has been mapped to inverted exclamation mark (U+00A1).

this font includes a full set of hiragana and katakana characters. in the tile set, 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.
