Xeno Pass/Torna or FFXV Pocket?

Torna is Blushy Crushy just for you!

Assuming you've played through Xenoblade Chronicles 2, my vote goes towards Torna. Just note that it's only about 25-30 hours long (maybe you could stretch it to 40-45 if you attempt to do all the side quests), so if you're expecting another huge 250+ hour adventure you might be disappointed. It's still significantly larger than expansions for other games and feels practically like a full game in of itself. And you may have some feels by the end of it. Some major feels.

So every region gets Sega Ages except us ... grrrrreat

Ages is in the eshop. For some reason they didn't mention it in the PR. Both games are available.
