Nova Caps is a striking and globe-trotting editorial typeface that steals inspiration from Roman inscriptions and Art-Deco architectural lettering.

Font used for text in "Yakuza", a 2006 video game from Sega.

I'm not looking for the stylized logo font, but rather the font used for all the regular text in the game.

I have tried all the font-identifying tools I could find online without luck. Perhaps the resolution of my sample is too low to identify visually, but it's also very possible it's a proprietary font that simply isn't publicly available. Apart from the rotated 'e' it's kind of generic so harder to find among the numerous Helvetica clones, but thought I might ask you experts here just in case.

Thanks in advance for any help!
