8-bit type in the age of 8-bit video games wasn't the same type of font files that you'd be using today on your average computer. They were instead bitmap files used within the game itself. I doubt Nintendo ever created actual font files for these and distributed them, but odds are that there are more than a few clones of this out there done by hobbyists (or even pros). Search for 'Nintendo' and 'bitmap' on the font sites out there.
