Niijima Palace is one of the main settings of Persona 5.
- Available: October 29
- Deadline: November 20
- Owner: Sae Niijima
The protagonist is shown infiltrating the Casino and when spotted by a human security guard they transform into Shadows. When the protagonist tore off their Masks, Demons erupted from their bodies. The protagonist escaped by shattering a glass window, when the alarm set off and he was immediately surrounded by the police. The protagonist and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts are shown marching towards the Casino. Later in the game, it is revealed to be the Palace of Sae Niijima, born from her jealousy of everyone close to her and her cynicism over the increasingly obvious corruption in the police department. Progressing through the area requires playing casino games with Sae's Shadow Self, who blatantly cheats-the Phantom Thieves must figure out ways to rig the games back in their favor without her noticing. In the good ending path, by the time the Phantom Thieves infiltrate the Palace, they have long realized Goro Akechi is a mole and take advantage of the Palace's overlay of the police station to trick him. This makes it the only Palace in the game not destroyed by the Thieves.
