Persona 5 Royal: How To Unlock The New Palace And Third Semester (Spoiler-Free)

P5R features 15 to 20 hours of new content, but you'll need to follow these steps in order to experience it.

Persona 5 Royal has a lot of new content that builds on the original game. However, the biggest chunk of that (the third semester and ninth palace) comes towards the end, but you'll have to do certain things throughout the course of the story to unlock all of it. This mainly consists of leveling up the new Confidants available in P5R.

The three Confidants you should rank up as soon as they're available are Akechi, Kasumi, and Maruki. As long as you take care of your relationships with them, you should be in the clear. However, there are a few things to take note of to make sure you go about it properly, mainly dates for when things happen, deadlines to rank them up, and a few tips to make things easier.

For more on Persona 5 Royal, be sure to check out our video on our experience at about 50 hours in, and stay tuned for our full review.
