NEW SCREENSHOT PACK: ‘SOCIAL LINKS AND STATUS UPGRADES’

LET THY FRIENDSHIPS BE THE SOURCE OF THINE STRENGTH!

 

Persona 4 Golden is many things: (possibly?) savior of the PS Vita, a 100+ hour RPG epic, incredibly sexy, etc.

It’s also one of the rare games to effectively humanize its characters and let you connect with them as non-superficially as the medium is capable of. The terrific Social Link system, which allows you to choose how and with whom you spend your time (allowing you to strengthen relationships that will then help you in battle) is the game mechanic that makes it all possible.

The batch of screenshots deals with Social Links and also the various ways in which some of your decisions can affect your own character by way of Status upgrades (e.g. increasing your Knowledge by studying).

For those of you who’ve never played a Persona game before, or at least neither of the last two major entries in the franchise, understanding the importance of the bonds you’ll forge over the course of your journey is truly critical to success in the game (and certainly doesn’t hurt your enjoyment, either!).
