What is an SWAV file?
An SWAV file is an audio file used by a Nintendo DS video game. It contains music, sound effects, or other audio played in the game. DS game modders may encounter SWAV files while examining or modifying a game's contents.
Most commonly, SWAV files are stored in a game's .SDAT (Nintendo DS Sound Data) file. Examples of DS games that use SWAV files include:
- Guitar Rock Tour
- Games in the Kingdom Hearts series
