Just finished my first playthrough and wondering how you chapter select? I am not seeing it anywhere. Do I need to make my way back to the broken bridge before I can do? --- Whatever kills me, makes me stronger.
after hitting chapter select or getting to the end of the very first area, you'll notice those shrines that were once gated up are now open and can be used to go directly to a specific area. --- there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
