    I've tried but didn't succeed.
    The header is RSTM, the format of Wii audio, or something like that, can't really rememeber...

    I kinda doubt it is an audio file, since it probably contains all the game assets.

    Me too, but that's what the header shows. We could only guess that it uses a similar encoding method similar to that of the Wii audio archieve.
