Persona 3 Portable: Justice Social Link Guide

  • How To Unlock The Justice Social Link
  • How To Rank Up Chihiro’s Social Link
  • How To Rank Up Ken’s Social Link

Persona 3 Portable changed a number of things about the original Persona series to modernize and spread it to a larger audience. Where the first two entries in the series were more focused on Persona usage, Persona 3 introduced the social simulation aspect for which the series has become revered.

With two different characters filling the roles of most of the game’s arcana (depending on which protagonist you chose), there’s a lot you’ll need to factor into your Persona friendships. For help befriending either Chihiro Fushimi or Ken Amada for your Persona 3 Portable Justice arcana, we’ve got you covered.

How To Unlock The Justice Social Link

Male Protagonist

As the male MC in P3P, your Justice Social Link is filled by Chihiro Fushimi.

You can begin her Social Link as early as 5/28, provided you've spoken to her three non-ranking times already after being made to join the Student Council.

These chats need to happen on days the Student Council does not meet in order to count.

You'll need to say specific things on these occasions as well.

Conversation Number

Response

1

I want to talk…

2

I'm male.

3

Hello.

Let's walk home together.

Chihiro's Social Link will unlock after these specific responses.

Female Protagonist

Playing as the female MC means that Ken Amada will be your Justice Social Link.

You can begin his Social Link starting on 9/1 by simply speaking to him when you see him in the Iwatodai Dormitory.

Beginning on 9/1, Ken can be found in the Iwatodai Dormitory Lounge at night. Simply speak to him there to begin the social link.

However, Ken's Social Link won’t unlock until you’ve reached Rank 6 (Max) Courage.
