DAT (Platinum Games)

From The VG Resource Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

DAT is a package common in all games developed by Platinum Games (excluding Infinite Space), containing models, textures, and sometimes animations. The encryption method seems to differ throughout each game, although it seems that everything from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance onwards uses the same formatting.

Conversion Tools


Noesis can extract/convert models and textures from Bayonetta and Vanquish, as both of these games use similar encryption methods. Support for other Platinum games are either very buggy, or completely incompatible.


MGRRTools contains a set of tools used to convert models and textures from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

List of Games Using the Format


  • Metal Gear Rising and Legend of Korra both use the same encryption/formatting. [1] Seeing as how The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 started and finished development inbetween these two, this presumably means that they, too, use the Metal Gear Rising encryption. Make sure to look into it once Wii U ripping/hacking goes public.
