All PlayStation 4 Nihon Falcom titles are available on the PlayStation 5. Additionally, if you bought DLC or obtained bonus content on the PS4 version, you can also move the data onto your PS5 save file. The official Nihon Falcom website instructs players to open up the game contents’ settings after pressing the options button from the game’s icon on the PS5 home screen. The screen should show all uninstalled additional content. If you do not see anything from the menu, it’s already in the game or you’re on the wrong PSN account.
