Are you ready to face your destiny and save the world from the Dark Hour Then let's begin!
April is the first month of the game and it serves as an introduction to the main characters and mechanics. You will learn about the Dark Hour, Persona, Tartarus, and SEES. You will also start your first social links and activities.

Try to balance your time between school, social links, and Tartarus. Don't neglect any of them.
Always have a Persona that matches the arcana of the social link you are hanging out with. This will increase the points you get and rank up faster.
Save often and use multiple slots. You never know when you might need to reload a previous day.
Explore Tartarus as much as you can before each full moon boss. Level up your party members, collect items, and fuse new Personas.
Don't be afraid to use items and skills in battle. They can make a big difference in difficult fights.
Pay attention to the weather and moon phases. They affect the enemies and events in the game.
