Can you skip cutscenes in Honkai Star Rail?

If you can't skip them, enjoy them!

Honkai: Star Rail is a massive game packed with so many compelling stories, from the mysteries of Aeons to the strife between Belobog's Overworld and Underworld, and beyond. But not all players are keen to read thousands of dialogue, and some might not even have the patience to sit through the cinematic cutscenes that pop up throughout Trailblaze Missions.

If you're rerolling, rushing through the early game, or simply don't care for cutscenes, here's everything you need to know about skipping them.

Is it possible to skip cutscenes in Honkai Star Rail?

I played Honkai: Star Rail for hundreds of hours across beta tests and the launch and unfortunately found no way to skip cutscenes in the game. However, if you die or retreat during a battle triggered by a cutscene, you can skip the cutscene upon re-entering the battle. This is the only instance where clicking on the screen will trigger the "Skip" option.

This is customary for HoYoverse games, which typically feature no skip option. We know that it can be extremely frustrating to sit through the cutscenes, especially when you're on your 20th reroll with no waifu or husbando in sight. However, Honkai: Star Rail offers a compelling story that connects you across various worlds—an experience that you definitely don't want to skip!
