After school, you have the opportunity to enter the television and defeat Shadows using special avatars called Personas. The dungeons are randomly-generated and the combat features a triangle of strengths and weaknesses. More often than not, there is a correct strategy for each enemy, and succeeding often results in the opportunity to do even more damage.
But what's really interesting about this game is how each specific type of gameplay feeds into the other. As your Social Links mature, your ability to craft even stronger Personas in the Velvet Room improves. And provided you have a Persona belonging to the right Arcana, they can help strengthen your Social Links.
