Important dates during September in Persona 5

  • 1st: Team meeting.
  • 7th-11th: Trip to Hawaii.
  • 13th: Team meeting.
  • 14th: Plot developments. (Any more than that would be a spoiler!)

  • 18th: Team meeting. You now have until October 9th to reach the treasure, and it must be stolen on the 10th at the latest.

For the rest of the calendar we're going to be deliberately vague and omit a few names - the plot is heading to a climax, and we don't want to drop a spoiler!

September events in Persona 5

Persona 5 follows a fairly strict calendar, and working out what's best to do on any given day can be a little tricky. We've created a path that, if followed correctly, should allow you to maximise all the social links with Confidants, max out your Social Stats (some days provide better gains to Guts, Knowledge etc than others) and see the bulk of the game's content in a single playthrough.

If you're already part way through then we'll still give you pointers to some efficient levelling opportunities, as well as ways to tackle each Palace and more.

1st: In the evening spend time with Sojiro.

2nd: Buy the broken laptop from Yongenjaya Second Hand Shop and the PC repair kit from the Machine Parts Shop in Akihabara, then take Yusuke to Jinbocho. (Conversation option: A.) In the evening repair the laptop at your work bench. (Proficiency +2)
