How To Skip FF7 Rebirth Nibelheim Flashback Chapter 1

Eager to dive straight into the new adventures in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, but already familiar with the Nibelheim flashback from the demo? You’re in luck! Rebirth offers a way to skip this section if you’ve played and completed the demo.

There is a catch. You won’t be able to skip the entire Chapter 1. However, you can skip a significant portion of the Nibelheim flashback, allowing you to jump straight into the action where the demo left off.

How To Skip FF7 Rebirth Chapter 1

  1. Make sure you have a completed save file from the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth demo. This save data needs to be present on your PlayStation 5.
  2. Launch the full game of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.
  3. Progress through the opening sequence and Sephiroth’s fight.
  4. Once you reach Nibelheim and reunite with Tifa, you’ll encounter your first battle outside the town.
  5. After defeating the enemies, a prompt will appear asking if you want to skip the Nibelheim mission.
  6. Choose “Yes” to skip the section, and you’ll be transported to the point where the demo ended.

While skipping Chapter 1 allows you to jump ahead quickly, it’s not a complete skip. You’ll still need to play through some introductory sections and key story moments within the Nibelheim flashback, even if you choose to skip.

This option is primarily for players who are familiar with the events of the Nibelheim flashback from the original Final Fantasy 7 or the demo and want to jump straight into the new content in Rebirth.

Final Words

Remember, experiencing the full story is always an option! If you’re a new player or haven’t played the demo, skipping Chapter 1 might remove important details and context for the overall narrative. So, choose wisely and enjoy your journey through Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth!
