The tool is devised by Engine Software.

"Supporting the very flexible XM music format, Engine’s Replayer is capable of playing intricate and adaptive music using only a tiny amount of CPU and RAM, with many advantages over native music formats," said GAA's announcement.

"The close relationship between Nintendo & Engine spans some twelve years, and has seen their Sound & Music Replayer grow to become the audio engine of choice across many handheld platforms."
