Though persona 3 was first released in 2006 for PS2Atlus has decided to take the Portable version (from 2011, for PSP) as a reference for this remastering, which you can also play on Game Pass.
Persona 3 Portable is one of the most beloved installments in the series, although some sections are somewhat out of date with respect to its two sequels. one of them are social ties.
In Persona 3 Portable there are only three parameters that measure these links, but you must know how to increase them to the maximum to advance in the adventure. we explain how to maximize intellect, courage and charm.
Increase social links: the best tips
In Persona 3 Portable there are only three parameters that measure these links (unlike the five links in Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5). It is about intellect, courage and charm.
Each of these social ties can be maximized up to a limit. As we increase these statistics, we will have access to new skills, activities and other news.
To increase each of the links in Persona 3 Portable, you have to meet certain challenges, complete side missions, get good grades, explore the map, or even work.
If you do, you will not only have access to more skills and even new links (such as romances with each character), but you can also unlock trophies and achievements.
turn up the charm
The Charm social link measures the social skills you have. That is to say, how attractive you are to others, or how easy you are to get along with other characters.
You can only increase the Charm link up to a maximum of 80 points. Here are the best tips to increase this statistic in Persona 3 Portable.
