answered Looking for these Fonts from the Video Games "Super C" and "Soldier Blade" from the early 1990's

Super C is a Konami NES title from 1990. I'm looking for the font from the word "SUPER" in the title.

Soldier Blade is a Hudson Soft game from 1992 on the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine. I'm looking for the font in the image that says, "CARAVAN STAGE" or "CHALLENGE STAGE."

Example video of Super C:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGml5zkmRXg

Example videos of Soldier Blade:  https://archive.org/details/PC_Engine_Longplay_147_Soldier_Blade_Special   

and    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTUCP9I3naw

Looking for a digital version of these fonts. Commercial fonts are fine, but a free alternative would be nice.

I'm planning on using these to create a retro video game title screen of my own. 

Thanks.

Those are pixel graphics, not fonts.

For some recreations of vintage video games typefaces, you could start here: The Video Game Font Preservation Society.

Thanks for the tip!
