How to skip Nibelheim in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

If you were as a excited as we were for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth then you almost certainly played the demo before release. This gave you a sneak peak at the first chapter of the game where Cloud and Sephiroth are sent to Nibelheim in the flashback sequence. While great, there are a lot of slow moments here that make this section take quite a while so you may want to skip past it when starting the full game instead of doing it all again. Thankfully you can, but you have to do one little thing first that isn't very obvious.

How to skip Chapter 1 in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

So long as you did play and complete the demo for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth you can skip most of Chapter 1 to save time, but also get a few little in-game rewards.

Step 1: Go to the main menu.

Step 2: Select the Bonuses option.

Step 3: Here you will see what rewards you are eligible to get. Simply select Check Saved Data to import your demo save into the main game.

Step 4: Note that you can't skip the entirety of chapter 1 since there are some differences in the full game. As you play you will need to notice an indicator on the bottom right of the screen telling you that you can skip to the new content as soon as you begin the Nibelheim flashback section.

As skilled as your character may be in Rise of the Ronin, there are some challenges you will want to bring in some backup for. After you're thrust into the open world after the tutorial, however, you won't find any clues as to how co-op works here, or if it even exists at all. While co-op certainly does exist in Rise of the Ronin, it isn't accessible right away and may be more limited than you would hope for in a game like this. It's time to draw your katanas as we prepare to cut through all the mystery surrounding how to play co-op.
How to play co-op

The first thing that needs to be made clear about co-op in Rise of the Ronin is that it can't be used while exploring the open world. That means you can't bring a friend along to explore, do the various activities on the map, or do any side missions.

How to get Meowmere in Stardew Valley
A cat with a sword in Stardew Valley.

We all love a good, secret Easter egg in games, especially Stardew Valley, which is absolutely full of them. We were already excited about all the new content in the 1.6 update, but there was one item included that was never even teased. The Meowmere is a new, super-secret sword that pays a nice little tribute to Terraria. The complex sequence of events you need to perform to get it calls back to that classic crafting game. The Meowmere is intentionally hard to get, but you can save a lot of time by following these steps.
