Persona 5 Tactica is the third spin-off game in the popular Persona 5 series, much in the same vein as the Persona Q games of old. It follows the Phantom Thieves as they accidentally stumble into another world where characters have a chibi look and everything is more colorful compared to the other world. The crew find themselves in the middle of a dispute between kingdoms and the only way out is to part in a revolution.
In this Persona 5 Tactica trophy guide, I’ll tell you what you need to know to navigate the square tiles of EVIL and eventually get the Platinum trophy after many battles on the board.
There are 40 trophies in total to swipe in the name of justice:
1 Platinum trophy
4 Gold trophies
7 Silver trophies
28 Bronze trophies

As a Persona game, Tactica doesn’t have the usual gameplay loop. There are no social links to maintain, no schedules to constantly look up. There are only lots of turn-based strategy battles to fight and cutscenes to watch. And because of that change of pace, the Platinum requirements for Persona 5 Tactica are considerably lessened compared to the mainline game. All things considered, you are looking at a 40-hour platinum run with nearly 2 full playthroughs, one with New Game Plus.
Your first playthrough should solely focus on completing the main story, getting all the Awards (for the Grand Thievery Gold trophy), and getting the combat trophies out of the way. You don’t need to worry about leveling up your Personas to the highest levels just yet. That’s something you need to do in your second playthrough regardless. Actually, don’t level up to max on your first run. All levels reset on the next run and you’ll need to be near max to get all Personas for the Collection of Knowledge Gold trophy.
The Ultimate Mask Silver trophy is one of the trickier trophies to get for completion. You first need to be level 96 and have beaten all Quests to unlock this Persona. This also unlocks the Special Fusion you’ll need to complete the compendium.
There are 30 hideout conversations in total between all 4 chapters. You’ll need to listen to all of them to unlock the Quality Time at Leblanc Gold trophy. It’s not the hardest thing to do, listening to an hour’s worth of conversations, but it’s a nice break from all the turn-based combat.
The Metaverse Aristocrat Silver trophy is pretty straightforward. All your accumulated money is accounted for during the playthrough. You can spend your money to get the Weapons Master trophy and it won’t affect progress on the trophy. To make things easier for you, fuse for the persona Fortuna to gain the skill that would allow you to get 50% more at the end of each mission.
Difficulty is not necessarily part of the trophy run. In fact, you can get the vast majority of the trophies by playing the game in Easy mode. The problem is that playing on easy will make it harder for you to unlock the Irreplaceable Bonds Bronze trophy as you need one of your characters to die in order to do a Baton Pass.
And finally, the Conqueror of Kingdoms Silver trophy is tied to more than a few trophies required for completion. There are a total of 15 of them in the game, and you get it organically from playing the game right to the end. But getting all the awards should be your priority from the start if you can help it. You can also decide to save this till your second playthrough on your way to getting max level. Should you fail to an award the first time around, you can always replay the mission again from the Hideout.
All in all, one of the easiest trophies to get in a Persona 5 game. And that’s saying something for a series that’s notorious for the amount of grinding you need to do to get Platinum. But I guess, there’s not much you can do in a game where the main focus lies in tactics and throwing out large damage numbers.
And that’s everything I have to say about getting the Platinum trophy for Persona 5 Tactica. For more details on how to get the trophies in more detail, check out our walkthrough guides and other guides such as the Skill Tree guide.
