Persona 5 Royal introduces the Thieves Den, a hub for the protagonist offering a Gallery, a Movie Theater, a new card game, exclusive confidant dialogue, and plenty of awards to be won. These awards can be earned by completing in-game challenges ranging from extremely simple to wildly time-consuming and challenging.

    About the Thieves’ Den

    The Thieves Den serves as your own personal Palace. As you progress through the game, you’ll be able to change its decor and decorate using items found throughout your adventures in the Metaverse.

    A number of new challenges have also been added in Persona 5 Royal. Completing these unique achievements will earn you awards, which will be displayed on the walls of the Thieves Den. Awards will also grant you P Medals, which can be used to unlock content in the Gallery, Music, and Movie Theater sections.

    The Gallery includes images and sprites from the game, a large collection of concept art, and exclusive promotional art. Tracks from Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal can be unlocked in the Music section, while the Movie Theater features cinematic and animated cutscenes played throughout the game, along with trailers and footage from a number of past Persona concerts held in Japan.

    If you’re able to earn all 52 awards, you’ll be gifted with an Invisible Veil, which will prevent Shadows from detecting you while in the Metaverse. You’ll also be able to summon all acquired Personas for free.

    Useful Tips

    While it might be tempting to go into your playthrough of Persona 5 Royal with a focus on the following challenges, you’ll need to play the game at least twice to snag everything. We’d recommend going through your first playthrough however you see fit.

    With that being said, the following tips will make attaining some of these awards much easier.

    • Ace your exams. Doing well in school will allow you to earn more points while cultivating your social links with other students at Shujin Academy. (Sojiro will also hand over some neat bonuses if you show him you’re studying hard.)
    • Get the Insta-Kill ability. This will be unlocked once you hit Rank 7 with Ryuji. By utilizing this skill, sprinting into any weaker enemy will cause you to defeat them instantly, while also rewarding you with the money and experience you’d gain from fighting them in a normal battle. This makes grinding in Mementos incredibly quick and easy.
    • Max out Maruki’s Confidant Rank. Failing to do this will result in the third-semester storyline remaining locked. Specifically, reach Rank 9 with Maruki by 11/17 to ensure that you can complete the entirety of Persona 5 Royal.
    • Don’t skip Chihaya. Spending time with the fortune teller in Shinjuku will eventually unlock fortune readings. These can be used to increase the money you collect in battle, boost your confidant ranks, and more.
    • Max out Kawakami ASAP. Getting closer to your homeroom teacher will unlock a host of benefits, including extra free time that can be used to work on boosting your social stats and craft infiltration tools. She can also give you a massage after you spend time in the Metaverse, allowing you to leave Leblanc after a day spent kicking Shadow butt.
