What is a BFARC file?

A BFARC file is a game data file used by a Nintendo Switch video game. It is an archive that contains fonts saved in a binary format. Nintendo Switch Sports and Splatoon 3 are examples of games that use BFARC files.

More Information

BFARC files are specialized .SARC files. Unlike generic SARC files, BFARC files always contain fonts. They are typically located in a game's Font directory.

Other games that use BFARC files include Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. BFARC files included in these games are serialized and saved as .sbfarc files.

How to open a BFARC file

You can use SARC Tool to extract the .BFFNT files a BFARC file contains. Before doing so, you may need to rename the file to use the .sarc extension.
