Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES: Max Social Link FAQ by penguin_knight Version 1.3, Last Updated 2008-07-24 View/Download Original File Hosted by Game FAQs Return to Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES (PS2) FAQs & Guides Liked this FAQ? This guide is translated and written by Penguin_Knight I have gathered, translated, interpreted, and typeset this written guide for players who do not understand Japanese, but are interested in understanding how to maximize all the social links in Persona 3 FES (FES) within the first game play.
However, I would like to lay out some limitations so that you know what you are getting into: - This guide is better than its P3 original version, however it is still considerably restrictive, nearly every action outside Tartarus is controlled.
As time goes on it would improve, but overall, you have all major social link events worked out for you.
--Reference------------------------------------------------------------------ Most of the data are taken from the following Japanese sources: I played the Japanese version.
In order to avoid misunderstanding caused by translation, I also referred to the Double Jump Guide for the English responses: Title: Shin Megami Tensei P3, The Official Strategy Guide ISBN: 0-94741700-9-7 Price: 19.99 I strongly recommend this guide for its completion and details, there are some mistakes in the social link section and I have put the corrections in section 3.
For other data updated in FES, I referred to the complete guide: Title: Persona 3 FES Official Perfect Guide ISBN: 4757735766 Price: 1,680 Yen (Tax included) This Japanese is nothing short of amusement.
Despite of some errors, it is a valuable reference for gamers who understand Japanese. Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3 FES and all its related terms and story are belong to Atlus Co.
Often these events have an effect on the work, but not one that is visible to the viewer or reader unless they are privy to that outside knowledge. There are other forces at work in this world Frodo, besides the will of evil.
Some subtext is only speculative, and some comes from first hand sources such as interviews and DVD Commentary.
Either way, it is either not intentionally called out within the work, or the reference is oblique except to those who are 'in on it'. See "Funny Aneurysm" Moment, Harsher in Hindsight, Heartwarming in Hindsight and Hilarious in Hindsight for the accidental versions of this, as Reality Subtext is at least semi-intentional.
