Ghost of Tsushima has a sweeping story supported by gorgeous visuals and expert voice acting. It’s also somewhat long which leads to the question of whether you can skip cutscenes and dialogue in Ghost of Tsushima.

Below, we’ll explain why this is and whether you can skip cutscenes in Ghost of Tsushima.

Can You Skip Cutscenes in Ghost of Tsushima? 

The quick answer to the question of whether you can skip cutscenes and dialogue in Ghost of Tsushima is no, you can’t.

In other PlayStation 4 games, you can often press the Options button to skip past a cutscene and speed things along. 

Some games are a little more generous with the ability to skip through parts of the game. In the case of Ghost of Tsushima, pressing Options will pause the cutscene, but it won’t skip it.

After pressing all of the other buttons, we can confirm that none of them will allow you to skip a cutscene. Likewise, you can’t skip dialogue in Ghost of Tsushima.

The game really wants you to experience every aspect of its story, and skipping things may result in things getting lost in translation later down the line.

This makes sense, as you don’t want to be at the end of the game wondering what’s going on, why you’re fighting certain characters, etc. 

We also thing some of the cutscenes are really interesting and have a cinematic flair to them that almost makes you feel like you’re watching a samurai film.

You can even toggle a “Samurai Cinema” mode to view the game in black and white, which is extremely cool.

Again, you can’t skip cutscenes and dialogue in Ghost of Tsushima. Pressing Options will pause a cutscene if you need to get up and grab something and come back, but it won’t skip the cutscene.
