Recreaction of the in-game font from Koei's strategy games Nobunaga's Ambition and Romance of the Three Kingdoms. This includes a basic (but slightly incomplete) set of hiragana and katakana glypns. Aside from my usual inclusion of smart quotes and inverted ! and ?, this is a straight glyph dump.
This beautiful font is a recreation of an original font appearing in the SNES strategy game Romance of The Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire, released as Sangokushi IV in Japan. It's my second Koei font recreation after Ishmeria (from the game Gemfire) and I think it's a very pretty and stylish font.
The character set of Sangoku4 includes a vast array of additional diacritic variants, number variations, bonus characters, unique glyphs, and also full sets of the Japanese hiragana and katakana alphabets from the original Japanese version of the game.
I recommend to use this one with font sizes that are multiple of 16pt and avoid any font smoothing or anti aliasing methods.

These elegant letters appear as the original main font used in the little-known tactical SNES RPG Gemfire, or Super Royal Blood in Japan.
Ishmeria is a faithful and exact recreation of said in-game font, expanded with hundreds of diacritic variants, number variations, additional bonus characters and various dingbat symbols. And that's not everything: all Japanese hiragana and katakana characters from the original version are also included, making this one of my most extensive recreations to date.
The base font size and recommended setting for Ishmeria is 16pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for an authentic pixel performance.
Gemfire on the SNES, known as Super Royal Blood in Japan, was developed and published by Koei in 1992.
