Persona 4: Golden Cheat Codes For Nintendo Switch, PlayStation Vita, Windows, and More

Persona 4: Golden Cheat Codes For Nintendo Switch, PlayStation Vita, Windows, and More

I have been playing RPGs my entire life, but no series has captivated my heart quite like the Persona series. When you think of a JRPG the first thing that probably comes to mind is Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy, maybe not now since Persona 5 completely took over the world for the last 8 years, but those games are more aligned with traditional JRPG ideals. After the immense success of Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal, many gamers look backward to get more Persona content while waiting for the next entry.

Persona 4 Golden is one of the best video games ever and deserves to be in the conversation for the best modern JRPG. Everything from its soundtrack to its commentary on society works together to create an interesting experience you’ll be talking about for years. Persona 4 Golden isn’t a difficult game by any means, but with our guide, you can make sure you don’t miss anything in this 100-hour RPG. You can read our review here.

To unlock the battle, you must be playing on New Game+, max out her Social Link, defeat all the other optional bosses by the end of January, and be on the True Ending route on 3/20. Once you’ve obtained the Orb of Sight on that day, immediately go back into the Velvet Room and speak to Margaret alone. This must be done before you continue the story. She will give you the Aqua Invitation, and you’ll be able to find her on the 10th floor of the Heaven dungeon.

Secret Persona Skills Through Skill Change

During certain in-game dates, the Velvet Room will have fusion forecasts where special events may happen if conditions are met. One of the fusion forecasts is “Skill Change” where one skill randomly selected will change into a different skill. The skill makes a parallel change; whatever it changes into will be the same rank as outlined by the rank of skill cards acquired through shuffle time. Most skills — both command and passive — have associated skill cards that can be acquired from shuffle time and/or from Chagall Cafe in Okina. There are two exceptions: God’s Judgement and Demonic Judgement. These two skills do not have corresponding skill cards however, once a skill changes into them, they can be passed onto any persona.

God’s Judgement and Demonic Judgement are both rank 10 skills that will reduce the target’s health by 50% to all enemies that aren’t immune to Light/Dark magic including the Golden Hands. Please note that Judgement skills are single-target only.

Rank 10 Skills eligible for change: Primal Force, Vorpal Blade, God’s Hand, Megidolaon, Salvation, Absorb Physical, Absorb Fire, Absorb Ice, Absorb Elec, and Absorb Wind.

To increase your odds of getting secret skills, do a triangle fusion and pass on five rank 10 skills on the skill change fusion forecast date to give you a 5/8 chance of getting the skill. If the resulting persona already has at least one rank 10 skill, you will then have 6/8 odds in your favor. Save and reload as necessary until desired results are achieved.

UnlockableHow to Unlock
Demonic JudgementRank 10 Skill randomly has a chance of changing into Demonic Judgement
God’s JudgementRank 10 Skill randomly has a chance of changing into God’s Judgement

Secret Weapons

Nearly every character has a secret weapon that can only be obtained by returning to a dungeon after it’s been completed once. Most of these involve beating an optional boss, but one can be found by searching the dungeon.

UnlockableHow to Unlock
Algernon (Naoto)Beat the Extreme Vessel in the Secret Laboratory.
Bear Claw (Teddie)Beat the Momentary Child in the Marukyu Striptease.
Chakra RingBeat the Lost Okina in Heaven.

Ultimate Personas

Each character is capable of evolving their personas to a third, ultimate form with unique skills. To do this, you must max out their respective social links, and then speak to them for another social link meeting at any point after 1/10. Yu’s evolved persona is first unlocked by reaching the True Ending but must be fused in New Game+ to be fully playable.

Ultimate Weapons

Unlike in the original game, The Reaper can now be fought on your first playthrough. To encounter it, you must first open 20 chests. If you hear rattling chains, it’s an indication that you have a chance at the Reaper spawning. Find a chest in which you’d normally find a Shadow, and try opening it. If The Reaper is inside, Rise will warn you and ask again if you want to open the chest. If you defeat The Reaper, it’ll drop Ultimate weapons for whichever characters are in your party.
