Persona 3 Reload: Yuko Social Link Guide

Persona 3 Reload: Yuko Social Link

Persona 3 Reload features a fair amount of romanceable Social Links. While Social Links that you can romance appear to function identically to the normal ones, there are a few invisible flags throughout that determine if you can confess your love to a girl. If you fail these flags then the romance option will simply never appear, a mechanic that was previously only seen from Naoto in Persona 4 and the Akihiko romance in Portable. If you don’t want to take that risk for the first romance option in the game, here is a guide for the Persona 3 Reload Yuko Social Link.

Yuko Social Link in Persona 3 Reload

To begin Yuko’s Social Link, you must first advance Kazushi’s Social Link to Rank 3. After the first few ranks you will have the option to walk home with Yuko, doing so will automatically begin her social link. From then on you will be able to hang out with her without going through Kazushi.

Because none of the choices you make during Yuko’s Rank 1 affect your relationship with her, this guide will begin at Rank 2.
