Recreation of the pixel font from Nintendo's "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening" (1993) on the Game Boy.

This recreation includes the special/accented characters from the french and german releases of the game. In game, the characters with a diaeresis use an additional tile above them - in this recreation, the characters have been combined properly (and as a result, the height of the font overall is greater than 8px).

As an aside, this font was also used for the fan translation of "For frog the bell tolls" (aka "カエルの為に鐘は鳴る" / "Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru", 1992/2011).

Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.

"Wow! This looks pretty heavy! You won't be able to Fontstruct it with just your bare hands..."

Nice work. :D

@zephram yeah, whenever i manage to find a very complete font in my research, i'm equal parts excited and terrified about the amount of work :)

It's a Link's Awakening quote. "Wow! This looks pretty heavy! You won't be able to pick it up with just your bare hands..." :D

Nice to see this font on here. A lot of YouTubers, Zelda streamers, etc. are fond of using the Link to the Past style fonts, but now they have an alternative.
