Persona 5: October events and activities

What you could get up to in the month of October.

Persona 5's October events and activities and wraps up both the Okumura Palace and starts the Casino Palace (beware of spoilers before clicking into that article!).

If you're after help for other parts of the game, consult our Persona 5 guide and walkthrough.

Important dates during October in Persona 5

  • 9th: Last day to reach Okamura's treasure.
  • 10th: Last day to steal Okamura's heart.
  • 11th: Results of Okamura's palace.
  • 12th: Investigation.
  • 13th: Team meeting.
  • 17th-19th: Exams.
  • 20th: Speak to Haru.
  • 21st: Team meeting.
  • 22nd-24th: You'll only have evenings free.
  • 25th-26th: Culture festival.
  • 27th: Team meeting.
  • 28th: Meeting.
  • 29th: Casino Palace infiltration. You now have until November 19th to steal the heart, but there are two dead ends here so you need to allow an extra day. We'd recommend getting to the first enforced exit by the 15th, then reaching the treasure the following day.

October 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.
