Recreation of the hiragana and katakana pixel fonts from Konami's "Akumajō Densetsu" (aka "Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse", 1987) on the Nintendo Famicom.
This font is only used on the title screen, intro story crawl, and dialog boxes - otherwise, the game uses a standard "Nintedoid" type font like https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/676742/nintendoid_1. In contrast, the western release uses a single stylised font throughout - see https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/682911/castlevania_3_1.
In the game's tileset, the dakuten and handakuten are separate tiles, positioned in the line above the character they relate to. In this recreation, these characters are pre-combined into a single glyph.
The game also uses a handful of actual kanji characters - however, due to their limited number and usefulness, these have not been added in this recreation.
Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.

Recreation of the font used in Konami's return to form..."Castlevania III - Dracula's Curse" (1989) 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.
