‘Persona 3 Reload:’ How to Unlock All Social Links, and All Correct Conversation Answers

Social Links are one of the more unique mechanics in the Persona series, all about forging bonds with a variety of quirky characters, from shady businessmen to a monk who loves to drink. Persona 3 Reload carries over the entire Social Link system from the original game, which means you have a lot of friends to make. Raising these relationships is a key part of Reload, but the dialogue choices you make can sometimes lead to a “reversal,” which lowers the bond.

With that in mind, you’ll want to make sure you’re choosing the best answer possible each time, maximizing the boosts you’re getting and opening time for other activities. We’ve compiled a list of every Social Link in Persona 3 Reload, how to unlock them, and the correct dialogue choices to make for each one.

How to Unlock All Social Links in Persona 3 Reload

Raising your Social Links will let you strengthen your Personas, and unlock new ones.
