    The Family Computer Disk System (Japanese: ファミリーコンピュータ ディスクシステム) is a peripheral for Nintendo’s Family Computer home video game console, released only in Japan on February 21, 1986. It uses proprietary floppy disks called “Disk Cards” for data storage. — Wikipedia

    Nintendo used an outline version of Othello for the Disk System font, along with Avant Garde (with alternate sloped A) for the Family Computer logo. The Japanese typeface is unidentified.
