Persona 3 Portable: Social Links Guide – All Social Links

Everything you need to know about Social Links in Persona 3 Portable and how to maintain them when they unlock.

Persona 3, including the Portable version, pioneered some of the signature elements of the Persona franchise. One of these is the Social Links mechanics. Social Links are the relationships you form with the various characters in the game, reflected by Arcanas. You interact with them, hang out with them and increase these Social Link levels; in return, you get various benefits such as stronger Personas, multiple abilities that make the game easier, and an in-depth look into the game’s and character’s lores and backstories.

Hence, apart from adding richness to the game’s narrative, developing Social Links in Persona 3 Portable plays a significant role in the game’s progression and overall outcome. Players who take the time to raise Social Links will be rewarded with enhanced powers and a deeper understanding of the game’s characters and world.

Social Links in Persona 3 Portable unlock at different times. Some require you to have a specific level of certain Social Stats to progress or even unlock any of them. Hence, this guide will help you figure out all the Social Links in Persona 3 Portable and when they unlock and are available to interact with.
