Hylian Serif is a new typeface designed by Artsy Omni, who is best known for creating Smashfied!. The typeface is derived from the text used in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and is a beautiful replacement for the aging “Triforce” typeface.
The typeface is updated regularly as updated source material becomes available. You can read more about the design and update process at the official Hylian Script website. You can also follow the project on Twitter to stay informed about the latest developments.
The Hylian Symbols font is an easy way to display and manipulate various recognizable symbols from the Zelda series. There are nineteen different symbols included in the font, including the Triforce, the Sheikah symbol, and the Royal Crest of Hyrule.
Hylian Language Fonts
Beginning with Ocarina of Time, many Legend of Zelda games have included text written using an in-game language known as Hylian. The language has changed in each major game introducing new characters and translations. Sometimes, the characters translate to English and other times the characters translate to Japanese.
Through the hard work of many Zelda fans, the Hylian languages from Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword have been deciphered and made available for use by the entire community.
In addition to Hylian, Ocarina of Time includes a Gerudo language. The Gerudo language was overlooked by fans for over a decade before it was finally revealed in Hyrule Historia.
Zelda Game Logo Fonts
Over the last 30 years, the logos of each of the Legend of Zelda games have used a variety of typefaces. The most iconic typeface is the one used for the word “ZELDA” in almost every logo, but the most inconspicuous typeface is Charlemagne, which is used for the phrase “The Legend of” in many of the logos.
Many of the newer games seem to use custom drawn text for their subtitles, but some notable games like The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess used typefaces that are readily available.
In-Game Text Fonts
Each Legend of Zelda game relies on a large amount of text. Sometimes the text is dialogue and other times it’s used to explain the item you just found in a treasure chest. Each game also has its own typeface for all the text that is used, and dedicated Zelda fans have collected those typefaces for use by the community.
The typefaces we have available are used in some of the older Zelda games. “Return of Ganon” is used in A Link to the Past while “Zelda DX TT BRK” is used in Link’s Awakening.
