Persona 4 Golden


Fight Margaret

Aside from fusing Personas, Margaret also serves as a hidden bonus boss. 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 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.

Hollow Forest

The Hollow Forest is a bonus dungeon. In order to unlock it, you must max out Marie's Social Link before December ends. Ask Margaret to inform you of Marie's whereabouts throughout January, and say you're not afraid of the danger. The Hollow Forest will then automatically unlock during a story event on 2/12, and you will have only through 2/13 to beat it.

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 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.
