actraiser font


recreation of the pixel font from quintet/enix's actraiser (1990) on the SNES.

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

the japanese version of this game features subtly different punctuation. this recreation only includes the punctuation marks from the western release.

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