Recreation of the pixel font from Shouei System/Toei Animation's "Fist of the North Star" (aka "Hokuto no Ken 2: Seikimatsu Kyūseishu Densetsu", 1987) on the NES/Famicom.

The font includes an almost complete set of katakana characters. The missing glyphs have been added here, trying to keep the same style. In the tile set, the dakuten and handakuten are separate tiles, positioned next to their respective character. In this recreation, characters that use them are pre-combined into a single glyph.

Apart from the few katakana additions, only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.

1000 is just that, a number. The fact that you've ALREADY rescued a whopping 990 game fonts and you're still looking... that's the real hit, compañero! MY GREATEST CONGRATULATIONS!
