die hard (dialog) (pc engine) font


recreation of the secondary pixel font from pack-in-games/nihon bussan's die hard (1990) on the pc engine/turbografx-16. this font is used for the dialog boxes.

this font includes a full set of hiragana and katakana characters. in the tile set, the dakuten and handakuten are separate tiles, positioned after 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.
