This is far from the first recreation of the original Nintendo DS system font, but it certainly is one of the most comprehensive variants, including about 800 characters.

NDS12 features a vast array of diacritics, common foreign characters, full Japanese hiragana and katakana character sets, buttons, arrows, unique glyphs, and many, many more.

The font is a 1:1 rebuild based on various games, expanded with many characters that couldn't be found in any game.

The base font size and recommended setting for NDS12 is 10pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for the ultimate handheld pixel experience.
