What is a WBFS file?

Files with the .wbfs extension are most commonly used by the Wii backup file system. The Wii is a gaming platform distributed by Nintendo. The WBFS backup files contain images of a Wii game that can be stored on an external device. This file format was initially created by Waninkoko for the Wii USB backup loader.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
