Opening XP3 files

Did your computer fail to open a XP3 file? We explain what XP3 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your XP3 files.

What is a XP3 file?

Files that contain the .xp3 file extension are commonly used for TVP XPK3 virtual file systems.

The XP3 files that are used by these file systems are archive files that have been created using the TVP 2 game construction system. This file format is a very common format for Japanese video games.

An XP3 file is similar to a container file and will normally consist of an archive of the game files that are used to create the associated video game software.

KiriKiri, a scripting engine created by W. Dee, also uses the .xp3 file suffix. These XP3 files contain the resource archives that are stored by the KiriKiri software.

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.
