To skip the Nibelheim flashback, you must visit Rebirth’s opening menu and select the “Bonuses” option followed by “Check Saved Data.” This will scan your PlayStation 5 for save data related to Final Fantasy 7, and if you’ve played the demo, it will unlock the ability to skip Nibelheim, as well as any save transfer bonuses you’re eligible for.
