There are various pixel fonts for the main text from the Ace Attorney games out there (like "PW Extended", "Ace Attorney", or "pwfont"), but none of them is a truly coherent or complete recreation of all the actual letters used in the original NDS games. Igiari is there to change that! This font includes over 800 characters and features a vast array of letters with diacritics as well as a near-complete set of all original Japanese hiragana and katakana characters from the Ace Attorney series.
The font is a 1:1 rebuild based on the games and appears exactly as in-game with correct spacing. I also added the game-related Borginian font symbols as well as countless of the more common characters and some gylphs that don't show up in the games.
Please note that the European games (with German and French translations) use a slightly thinner variant of this font. I may work on a European set later, but for now, this is the most comprehensive set of Ace Attorney letters you will find on the net.
Due to the inclusion of the larger Japanese characters, the base font size and recommended setting for Igiari is 16pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for the ultimate Ace Attorney pixel experience.
The Ace Attorney games for Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS were developed and released by Capcom from 2001 onward. I picked the name of the font (Igiari) after the Japanese variant of the games' trademark "Objection!" expression. The reason I rebuilt this font is that I needed the original appearance in an indie game project of my own.
