This page documents the save://rp_savedata.dat file, which belongs to NSMBU, but is NOT directly present in its filesystem.

This file is created by the game within the MLC at the save:// location, which is dynamically handled by the Wii U OS to link it to each game's appropriate save folder within the MLC.

Purpose[edit | edit source]

This file holds the saves data and virtually all external dynamic data from the game, with the exception of replay movies, which are each stored in their own individual file next to this file.
