How to Fix FF7 Rebirth Demo No Text Bug?

There are two ways you might be able to fix the bug where there’s no text in the FF7 Rebirth demo. The first method is to go back to the home screen, but keep the demo highlighted and don’t exit or close it. Press the Options button (the tiny button next to the triangle), then select Manage Game Content. Find English and download it. Now you can close the demo, then reopen it. Check whether the problem has been resolved. If not, search for the FF7 Rebirth demo in the PS store. You’ll find two versions. Check both of them by pressing X while highlighting them. Only one will have English as a supported language. If that’s not the one you have installed, there’s your problem.

And there you have it, that’s how you fix the no text bug in the FF7 Rebirth demo. Keep in mind; even once you do download the correct version, you might still have to go through the process of installing the English pack manually. I know, all of this is pretty confusing, with the different version so the demo and whatnot, but at last, we’ve managed to untangle it. If neither of these works, you might have to contact Square Enix support. If you do know of any other workaround for this problem, let us know in the comments. And if you need to know whether your progress in the demo is going to carry over to the full game, check out this guide.
