Persona 4 Golden is easily the most popular game in Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei series, and it features multiple endings you can get in a single playthrough. It’s easy enough to get the regular good ending for the game, but if you’re looking to get the true ending, that’s a little trickier. Here’s how to unlock the true final boss and secret dungeon in Persona 4 Golden.
Unlocking the True Final Boss and Secret Dungeon in Persona 4 Golden
Do be warned that this article contains major spoilers for the end of the game, as well as the identity of the culprit, so stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled on those.
With that out of the way, the true ending requires you to correctly identify Tohru Adachi as the culprit behind the mysterious murders, and you’ll also need to max out Marie’s social link and clear the Hollow Forest secret dungeon during the skiing trip. Once you’ve met both of these pre-requisites, you’ll be able to unlock the true final boss and secret dungeon later on.
After clearing the Hollow Forest, simply continue playing through the game as per normal until you reach the end where you have the chance to talk to all of your friends before leaving Inaba. Once you’ve talked to everyone, the game will prompt you and ask if you’d like to go home. Say no until you get the opportunity to continue exploring Inaba.
Next, head to Junes and go up to the foodcourt for a special cutscene with the rest of your party. After a series of cutscenes, when you finally regain control of your character, head back to the shopping district and go to the gas station.
You should see the gas station attendant standing outside, so talk to them and continue until you’ve exhausted all their dialogue options and another cutscene will start.
After another series of cutscenes, you’ll be taken to the secret dungeon and you’ll get to fight the true final boss at the end of it. You won’t be able to leave the dungeon once you enter, but you’ll still have access to the shops at the entrance of the TV world.
That’s all you need to know about how to unlock the true final boss and secret dungeon in Persona 4 Golden. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game.
