How to start/maintain each Social Link in Persona 3 Portable

More friends! More allies!

With Persona 3's introduction of Social Links, Persona 3 Portable, a remaster made for modern platforms, carries on and further refines the concept. Starting and maintaining relationships plays a crucial role in a game's playthrough, and in this guide, we will help you achieve that.

How to build and maintain Social Link relationships in Persona 3 Portable

Building and maintaining Social Links in Persona 3 Portable requires certain prerequisites, like completing side-quests, leveling up your social stats, and spending time with other friends to advance your relationships. This is an important aspect of the game. It revolves around meeting new characters, growing your relationships, and investing time in them to reach the maximum Rank of 10 with a Social Link. You can get an extra number of points you obtain with any Arcana by:

  • Having Charm level 6, which you can raise by getting the quiz questions right.
  • Interacting with the Social Link while you have a Persona of the matching Arcana in your current lineup.

We have compiled a list of Social Links with characters that can be tracked through the story by date and the Arcana. Remember that your character's gender will impact your ability to unlock a particular character's Social Link.
