Go Back to Title list


These are titles which provide downloadable content to a specific title. The reason why these titles can only be purchased in game, is because all DLC content is under a set of title(s), downloading via the eShop would download all DLC content. And because all DLC content is under a set of title(s), they are viewed as one(?) title in system settings, and individual DLC can only be deleted from within the game which uses the DLC.

The titleID-low for DLC is: ((uniqueID<<8) | DLC_title_index). DLC_title_index starts at zero. Each DLC item is grouped under a DLC_title_index. Usually an application only has one DLC_title_index, but for applications which have a *lot* of DLC there's more than one DLC_title_index(JPN Home Menu for themes for example).

Every DLC title include NCCH partitions. The first one is always content metadata.

Content metadata structure

The first NCCH partition of a DLC title. It determines region, language and DLC icons. The ExeFS section of content metadata only contains icon section. The RomFS section contains "icons" directory, MetaDataContentHeader.bin and some ContentInfoArchive file(s).

icons directory

Contains DLC icons (.icn files).
