teenage mutant ninja turtles III (extended) font


recreation of the pixel font from konami's teenage mutant ninja turtles III: the manhattan project (1991, released in japan as teenage mutant ninja turtles II: the manhattan project) on the famicom/NES.

this tile set originally included only a partial set of hiragana and katakana characters - these have been extended a bit in this recreation to make it more useful, but it's still not 100% complete. in the tile set, the dakuten and handakuten are separate tiles. in this recreation, characters that use them are pre-combined into a single glyph.

the original tile set was, oddly, also missing the latin Q. this has been added here for completeness.

apart from this, only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
