Understanding the Persona 3 Reload: The Social Link System

The Persona franchise’s core features for getting stronger involve the Social Link system, which correlates to the player’s progression toward acquiring the most powerful Personas. A Social Link represents the player’s bond with a character who embodies a specific Arcana on the Tarot. As the player progresses through a character’s Social Link, they will gain bonus experience with Personas of that Arcana upon successful infusion. Once the player reaches the max level, they will gain access to their Memento, which enables them to craft the best Persona of that type. In Persona 3 Reload, the characters and their respective Arcana include:

  • SEES: The Fool
  • Kenji Tomochika: The Magician
  • Fuuka Yamagishi: The Priestess
  • Mitsuru Kirijo: The Empress
  • Hidetoshi Odagiri: The Emperor
  • Bunkichi and Mitsuko: The Hierophant
  • Yukari Takeba: The Lovers
  • Kazushi Miyamoto: The Chariot
  • Chihiro Fushimi: Justice
  • Maya: The Hermit
  • Keisuke Hiraga: Fortune
  • Yuko Nishiwaki: Strength
  • Maiko Oohashi: The Hanged Man
  • Pharos: Death
  • Bebe: Temperance
  • President Tanaka: The Devil
  • Mutatsu: The Tower
  • Mamoru Hayase: The Star
  • Nozomi Suemitsu: The Moon
  • Akinari Kamiki: The Sun

This guide will provide information for each character, their requirements, and what days they are available to maximize your Social Links efficiently.
