    Today I unpacked the game to check for any unused content inside the game. I got the .moflex and .awp files covered thanks to the help of Gericom and Demonslayerx8. Now I'm having some problems with the following formats:
    - .la2 (looks like a model container, since it contains a few formats inside, like CLIM, CLPA, CLVC);
    - .acb (audio file, I guess, since it was inside the sound folder);
    - .hpk, .cnf, .gcx (used by the maps and the stages inside the game).

    I think that's pretty much it. If you want to discuss about some of the unused content inside the game head over here or just post here and I'll update the other page. Thanks for your help! :D

    Does someone has some kind of documentation for the 3ds game file formats? (like bclim, bcfnt, ecc.. , because I'm pretty close to extract the textures from those files)

    I think the demo contains much more unused things than retail version.
    ;)

    I'm looking at the complete game, while the others at the demo. We're just 3 random dudes on an IRC actually, so don't expect much progress in a short time
