Persona 3 Reload: Nozomi Social Link Guide

Persona 3 Reload: Nozomi Social Link

Persona 3 is filled with some of the best Social Links in the entire Persona franchise, but also some of the strangest. Perhaps there is no stranger Social Link than that of Nozomi Suemitsu’s. This Social Link has you interact with a self proclaimed “Gourmet King” who loves nothing more than eating food, before getting sucked into joining a doomsday cult of course. While this Social Link has less choices to make than others in the game, that also results in each choice opportunity mattering more. If you want the maximum amount of points, here is a guide for the Persona 3 Reload Nozomi Social Link!

Nozomi Social Link in Persona 3 Reload

Nozomi can be found hanging around the Iwatodai Mall on most days of the week. Before you can start his Social Link you’ll first need to raise your Charm social stat to level 2. After you gain his attention, he’ll give you a quiz about the mall before you can begin his social link.

The questions and answers for this quiz are as follows:

Q1: “What’s the most popular drink at the Cafe over there?”

A: Pheromone Coffee

Q2: “What color skirt does Azuki Arai’s mascot, Azuki-chan, wear?”

A: Red

Q3: “What item is on the secret menu at Hagakure?”

A: Hagakure Bowl

After answering the questions, Nozomi will have one final request before you can begin his Social Link. You’ll need to bring him an Odd Morsel item from Tartarus.

Once he eats the odd morsel, the Social Link can finally begin. Because no choices you make during the first rank effect your relationship with Nozomi, this guide will begin at Rank 2.
