Jail of the Abyss Story Walkthrough


1 Talk to everyone to receive accessories with various effects. When you're done examine the RV and Zenkichi will suddenly call you.
2 Head to the Velvet Room, where you will now gain access to quad and pentad fusions.
3 Go back out, hop on the RV, and head to the Tokyo Radio Tower. Once you're there, you will automatically infiltrate the Jail of the Abyss.

Jail of the Abyss

Path to the Abyss

1 If you look at your map, you'll see that the very first area is swarming with Shadows. Don't worry, you'll be fine as long as your party gear are updated and you're decently leveled.

Head to the marker and defeat the waves of Shadows.
Make your way to the east. In the area where you fight a giant Bugs, you'll find a cover point that leads you to a chest containing an Owazamono. Requires Safecracker Lv3.
Now jump down and approach the marker where you will fight Coffin-Borne God.
4 Register the checkpoint and head to the Bridge to the Abyss.

Bridge to the Abyss

1 Hmmm... Nothing to do here except enter the Hall of the Ark.

Hall of the Ark

Approach the marker for a cutscene. When all is said and done, Sophie will turn against you and you'll be forced to fight her.

Well, not really. You'll just have to stay away from her and survive until the dialogue ends. After some cutscenes, you'll find Sophie unconscious and will not be able to participate in battle for now. (Bruh I just bought her new weapon and armor)

Depths of the Abyss

1 You'll now start in the Depths of the Abyss. If Sophie was in your team, you'll have to pick a substitute for her.

Activate the checkpoint and talk to Futaba to restore all your HP and SP.
Jump up the platforms while taking out the Shadows in your way. West of the next marker is a chest containing a Valkyrie Robe. Requries Safecracker Lv3.
3 Approach the objective marker and defeat all Shadows that appear. End the battle faster by performing a Phantom Dash using the mysterious boxes.
You'll find another chest in the next area south containing a Lullaby.
5 Head to the next objective marker and defeat more waves of Shadows.
Fight your way south to the next marker (don't forget to activate the checkpoint along the way), and defeat the Abyssal King of Avarice.
7 Jump up the platforms and enter the rear area of the Hall of the Ark.

Hall of the Ark: Rear Area

1 Activate the checkpoint (save if you have to) and enter the Hall of the Ark.

Hall of the Ark

1 After the talking, you'll be immediately surrounded by Shadows. A lot more will come so try not to get overwhelmed by using a hit and run strategy.

Run around the area, let in a few hits if you find an opportunity, then run again. Use skills if you can and don't forget to heal your allies when needed.
Cool, Sophia's Persona awakened! You'll also be given an opportunity to rearrange your party. Recover HP and SP if you need to.

Afterward, the Hundred-Armed Watcher will be summoned along with other Shadows.
3 After the battle, the Jail of the Abyss will be completed and you will automatically transfer to the next jail after some cutscenes!

Jail of the Abyss Boss Fights

Mini-Boss: Coffin Borne God

An easy battle. This Shadow is weak to Wind attacks so Morgana's Persona would do well in this fight as well as other Personas you picked up or fused with Wind attacks. Since this enemy has a huge health pool, you'll want to deplete its Down Gauge as soon as possible. When it starts summoning bears, use the mysterious box in the corner to perform a Phantom Dash, which will let you execute an All-Out attack on them that can also damage the coffin.

Mini-Boss: Abyssal King of Avarice

Physical and Gun attacks won't work well against this Shadow. Use members that can deal elemental damage with their combos to make their attacks effective. A good choice would be Makoto since she can infuse her attacks with Nuke damage, which is also one of this slime's weaknesses.

Run around when this Shadow submerges and to avoid its attack when it pops out behind you. Stay away in front of it when it starts casting Maeiga as it will send a wave forward that deals Curse damage.

Boss: Hundred-Armed Watcher

Yeah this boss IS familiar. This one's the same as the Okinawa Jail mini-boss but this time, he got promoted to boss. Same attacks, too, but different set of lackeys. He's still weak to Bless attacks so this is a perfect opportunity to try out Sophia's newly awakened Persona. Spam Bless attacks to deplete its Down Gauge so you can execute an All-Out attack and the watcher will go down in no time.
