Recreation of the pixel font from Konami's "Getsu Fūma Den" (1987) on the Nintendo Famicom.

This font includes a full set of hiragana 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.

The font also includes a set of box drawing characters, mapped to the "box drawings light" glyphs (U+2500, U+2502, U+250C, U+2510, U+2514, U+2518). Note that because the font is now taller than 8 pixels due to the dakuten/handakuten characters, these will only line up if explicitly set to an 8 pixel high grid.

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