What is a BARSLIST file?

A BARSLIST file is a resource list used by a Nintendo Wii U or Switch video game. It contains a list of .BARS (Binary Audio Resource Archive) files that the game uses. Games use BARSLIST files to confirm that all their necessary audio resources are present at runtime.

More Information

Several Nintendo-developed games for the Wii U and Switch use an audio framework known as AAL. These games contain several types of proprietary audio and audio-related files, including BARSLIST and BARS files. These files are not meant to be accessed or opened by players.

Some games that use BARSLIST files include:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • The Splatoon series
  • Arms
  • Super Mario Maker
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons

How to open a BARSLIST file
