An XNB file is a binary data package created with XNA Game Studio Express. It contains one or more files that may be referenced by a corresponding application.

Since the data stored in an XNB file is saved in a packaged format, the original files cannot be accessed by the end-user. This helps software developers protect their original content from being copied and redistributed.
