What is a BCRES file?
A BCRES file is a game data file used by a Nintendo 3DS video game. It contains an in-game model as well as related textures, animations, and camera data. BCRES files are used in several popular 3DS games, including Animal Crossing: New Leaf and New Super Mario Bros. 2.
Nintendo video games use a variety of proprietary file formats to store game data. Some Nintendo 3DS games store in-game character, item, and terrain models and related files in BCRES files. Most gamers will never encounter BCRES files, except those who want to mod the assets BCRES files contain.
How to open a BCRES file
A variety of player-made utilities allow 3DS gamers to open BCRES files and export the data they contain in common file formats, such as .OBJ, .DAE, and .PNG. These utilities include Ohana3DS Rebirth (Windows), SPICA (Windows), and EveryFileExplorer (Windows).
