This is our unofficial guide for how to unlock and reach the new Third Semester in Persona 5 Royal.
The Third Semester has all new lessons to attend, a brand new Palace to liberate, several new floors inside Mementos and a third form for the Persona for each of the Phantom Thieves.
Throughout your journey to change the hearts of evil adults, you will form social bonds known as Confidants with certain individuals.
Three of these Confidants is the key to reaching the Third Semester. These are the Councillor, Faith and Justice, which are represented by Takuto Maruki, Kasumi Yoshizawa and Goro Akechi.
To successfully unlock the Third Semester, these three essential Confidants must reach these ranks by a specific in game date.
|Confidant||Rank Required||In Game Date|
|Councillor (Takuto Maruki)||Rank 9||November 17th (11/17)|
|Faith (Kasumi Yoshizawa)||Rank 5||December 22nd (12/22)|
|Justice (Goro Akechi)||Rank 8||November 18th (11/18)|
By doing this, the game will progress beyond the usual finishing date of December 24th (12/24), and you will reach the Third Semester.
