These Xenoblade Chronicles X screens were delivered as bitmaps

Xenoblade Chronicles X is a beautiful game and deserves a beautiful file format.

Unfortunately I only have so much upstream bandwidth, so I not only shrunk ’em down, I then compressed the heck out of them. They are ruined forever. I’m not even sorry.

If you really want to know how beautiful Xenoblade Chronicles X is (beautiful enough to make my laptop groan while batch processing) you’ll just have to pick it up on Wii U; during Nintendo’s E3 2015 show we learned it is coming west in December. The New Xenoblade Chronicles X trailer is pretty good, by the way.

Anyway: screenshots, factsheet, artwork. Enjoy, my precious cherubim.
