Recreation of the katakana pixel font from Konami's "Dracula II: Noroi no Fūin" (aka "Castlevania II: Simon's Quest", 1987) on the Nintendo Famicom.
While the title screens use the same latin font as the western releases (see Castlevania 2 - https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/682905/castlevania_2_1), this font is used in the game itself (including the dialog boxes and inventory/menus) . In the game's tileset, the dakuten and handakuten are separate tiles, positioned to the right of the character they relate to. In this recreation, these characters are pre-combined into a single glyph.
The font also includes a set of basic box drawing elements (U+2501, U+2503, U+250F, U+2513, U+2517, U+251B).
Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.

Recreation of the font used in the (often hated) "Castlevania 2 - Simon's Quest" (1987) by Konami on the NES. Only the characters used in the game (and present in the ROM) have been included - if you need some missing special character, I'd suggest combining it with my Nintendoid 1 or 2.
