Persona 4 Golden's length will have you take at least around 69 hours to beat the game. That's if you breeze through the story as much as possible. Like many other massive RPGs, this will also depend on how much time you invest into side activities and collect-a-thons. 

There is a lot of skippable content in Persona 4 Golden; side quests, Social Links, stat-boosting activities, and optional boss fights; that will pad your runtime up to at least 80 to 85 hours. However, whilst this type of additional content could definitely be skimmed over in other games, completing the side quests and Social Links can be crucial to getting Persona 4 Golden's true ending - so it would be wise to invest the extra time. 

On the other hand, for you completionists out there who want to get all the trophies and achievements, Persona 4 Golden will take even longer to complete. For larger tasks like completing the Persona Compendium, beating the Reaper, or even defeating Margaret - beating Persona 4 Golden will take you beyond the 100-hour mark.

At most, it can take you 120 to 140 hours to beat Persona 4 Golden.

That's everything on our Persona 4 Golden length guide on how long it takes to beat the game. For more help early in the game, take a look at the answers for "Quest 01: Who's the Riddle Master?!".
