If it’s the first time you play Persona 4 Golden and you want to understand the entire story faster, this guide will share some tips that help you see the whole story in a single playthrough, let’s check it out.
I decided to make this short guide since P4G is notorious for not giving new players enough info to figure out how to get to the Golden Ending and see every Golden-exclusive piece of content by yourself. If you follow it you will get the most out of your first playthrough without reading walls of text or following a walkthrough religiously.
Try to get Marie to Rank 10 and Adachi to Rank 6 before 11/24
Prioritise those S. Links. Marie unlocks a new dungeon and the Golden Ending and Adachi adds a lot of new scenes later on in the strory. His S. Link progresses automatically after you get it to Rank 6 so don’t worry about it.
If you really don’t like Marie then you can ignore her and still get the original PS2 True Ending of the game. Her dungeon and the winter segment will be skipped completely this way. This is not recommended because this content is pretty enjoyable. You will still see all the Adachi scenes this way.
Get the True/Golden End requirements
Don’t read this until you clear the Heaven dungeon (this is pretty late in the game). I’ll try to make it as spoiler-free as possible:
On 11/03 choose the following responces when prompted by Yosuke:
1. Wait a second here…
2. We’re missing something.
3. Namatame’s true feelings.
4. Something’s been bothering me.
5. We’re missing something…
6. Calm the hell down!
On 11/05 choose the correct person
If you decide to protect this person if asked, you will instead get another Golden-exclusive Accomplice Ending. This is on of the “bad” ends, so if you decide to go for it make sure to keep a save before this point so you can continue on later.
On 03/20 talk to all of your maxed S. Links. After the game asks you if you want to go home, select “No” and go to Junes Food Court instead.
Whether you get True or Golden ending is decided by if you max Marie’s S. Link or not.
That’s all we are sharing today in Persona 4 Golden Beginner Tips That helps You Understand the Story, if there are anything you want to add please feel free to leave a comment below and we’ll see you soon.
