The internet has quite some Mega Man fonts to offer, but there is simply no faithful recreation with extended character sets, Japanese glyphs, and all the other stuff you might want to type down in true Mega Man style.
So I decided to recreate the latest variant of the original game font myself. The result: "MMRock9" (which can be pronounced as "Rock you" in Japanese), a true-to-original, carefully researched recreation of the pixel font used in Mega Man 9 and 10.
This font features (likely) all that you could ask for - original monospace character margins, letter variants with diacritics, some game-specific bonus glyphs like Start/Select buttons and the Mega Man 3 background logo, and last but not least a full Japanese character set with all hiragana and katakana glyphs appearing in the Japanese version. Also included: Lots and lots of added glyphs as well as some minor character variations appearing in earlier Mega Man games.
The base font size and recommended setting for MMRock9 is 8pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for a thoroughly wily font experience!
The Mega Man series was primarily developed by Capcom and released on various systems between 1987 and 2012.
