Persona 5 Royal - How to get the true ending

In order to get the "best" or "true" ending in Persona 5 Royal, you need to meet the following requirements:

  • Reach Councillor Arcana (Doctor Maruki) Rank 9 before 18th November
  • Reach Faith Arcana (Kasumi Yoshizawa) Rank 5 before 18th December
  • Reach Justice Arcana (Goro Akechi) Rank 8 before 24th November
  • Refuse all offers presented by the big bad boss

Generally speaking, you have more than enough time to reach these confidant rank requirements before the specific deadlines. However, it's still best to prioritise meeting with all three of these characters when you're free and they are available, if only to make sure that you keep on top of things.

Remember that holding a persona of the same arcana as the person you're meeting up with increases their confidant rank faster.
