This font is bitchin
Thanks for the kind words. There are also other versions of the NES font here on FontStruct; it has become quite a popular video game font to recreate!

The NES font is based on the original video arcade game font created by Lyle Rains for Atari's "Sprinter 2" in 1976. By the late 1970s, other video game companies began using and modifying the characters for their own arcade games:

The K is not accurate, at least when compared with The Legend of Zelda. The top K is made with the font and the bottom is from the game.

@sss_ohio - You are correct, and that's why I located the alternate "K" from the Legend Of Zelda in the Ç position.   ;^)
