    What type of Japanese font is used in the game?
    Not the style but what type of Japanese, if that makes sense

    Like most Japanese script it will be a mix of all three;

    Katakana for "adopted" words, ie western words. Things like Mario, Sonic, etc..
    Hiragana for a lot of Japanese words, and some kanji for other Japanese words.

    I just bought a Japanese Wii with Smash Bros and from memory it has a lot of katakana (which is also relatively easy to learn, like hiragana).
