What is an SMDL file?

An SMDL file is a 3D model used in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. It contains a mesh, skin, and animations. SMDL files are used to show characters in-game.

More Information

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is a platforming video game available for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch. It was developed by Retro Studios, an American subsidiary of Nintendo.

Tropical Freeze is the first Retro Studios game to use SMDL files. Unlike many other types of 3D model files, SMDL files contain a model's mesh, textures, and animations in the same file. Thus, Tropical Freeze can load a single SMDL file to show and animate an in-game character.

How to open an SMDL file

SMDL files are not meant to be opened. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze loads and uses SMDL files as players play the game.
