As something of a sub-system of the Social Link/Confidant system of the main Persona games, you could usually date members of your party, female classmates, or in some cases, adult women with flexible morals. You could even date all of them at once, provided you don’t mind getting your teeth kicked in at the end of the story. Considering the story of Persona 5 Strikers has a bunch of young people going cross-country in a camper, it’s understandable to wonder if there’s any potential for romantic shenanigans. So, does Persona 5 Strikers have romance options?
As the Confidant system has been replaced by the Bond system, representing a blanket relationship with the entire Phantom Thieves, there isn’t really any way to raise your affinity with your party members on an individual basis. This means, unfortunately, that there are no romance options in Persona 5 Strikers. Sorry, but your favorite pairing doesn’t exist in this game; everyone is strictly platonic.
Does Persona 5 Strikers have Romance Options?
However, while you can’t exactly enter a relationship with any of your party members, there are a few instances in the game’s story where you’ll be prompted to select a partner for a special sightseeing event. You can choose any member of your group, male or female, just by going to talk to them when you’re prompted. These events don’t change the story or future dialogue at all, they’re just there for fun, so pick whoever you like best to get a pleasant little scene with them. You’ll also receive a little reward of Bond experience, so that’s nice as well.
Also, whenever you get a text from a member of the group asking for your help with a particular request, you should endeavor to do it before moving on from your current city. Accomplishing these requests will actually net you a few additional lines of dialogue in the game’s last act, as well as some special accessories that offer elemental resistances.
