Compared to the regular NES version, the Famicom not only had improved graphics, but also a whole story trailer and cut-scene screens between each mission...and for these, the ROM included extra punctuation and an almost complete set of katakana characters, which I've included here as well (mapped to their corresponding unicode points).

In the game, some of the more complex katakana characters were built by combining two separate characters (for instance, the letter Hu followed by a "double bar" character to form the letter Bu); however, for this recreation I actually created single characters for these compounds and mapped them to the correct katakana code point - but as a result, these characters have double the width of the other letters (16px rather than 8px).

Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.Recreation%20of%20the%20pixel%20font%20from%20Konami%27s%20%22Contra%22%20%28aka%20%22Gryzor%22%20and%20%22Probotector%22%2C%201987%29%20on%20the%20Nintendo%20Famicom.%0D%0A%0D%0ACompared%20to%20the%20regular%20NES%20version%2C%20the%20Famicom%20not%20only%20had%20improved%20graphics%2C%20but%20also%20a%20whole%20story%20trailer%20and%20cut-scene%20screens%20between%20each%20mission...and%20for%20these%2C%20the%20ROM%20included%20extra%20punctuation%20and%20an%20almost%20complete%20set%20of%20katakana%20characters%2C%20which%20I%27ve%20included%20here%20as%20well%20%28mapped%20to%20their%20corresponding%20unicode%20points%29.%0D%0A%0D%0AIn%20the%20game%2C%20some%20of%20the%20more%20complex%20katakana%20characters%20were%20built%20by%20combining%20two%20separate%20characters%20%28for%20instance%2C%20the%20letter%20Hu%20followed%20by%20a%20%22double%20bar%22%20character%20to%20form%20the%20letter%20Bu%29%3B%20however%2C%20for%20this%20recreation%20I%20actually%20created%20single%20characters%20for%20these%20compounds%20and%20mapped%20them%20to%20the%20correct%20katakana%20code%20point%20-%20but%20as%20a%20result%2C%20these%20characters%20have%20double%20the%20width%20of%20the%20other%20letters%20%2816px%20rather%20than%208px%29.%0D%0A%0D%0AOnly%20the%20characters%20present%20in%20the%20game%27s%20tile%20set%20have%20been%20included.
