Persona 5 Sun Cooperation ability Negotiation

The player has obtained the "Art of Negotiation" ability at rank 2 of the Sun Confidant.

Confidant, known as Cooperation (コープ, Kōpu)? in the Japanese versions, is a game mechanic in Persona 5.

This mechanic is similar to the Social Links of Persona 3 and Persona 4 and will involve the protagonist building relationships with helpers around the city. However, the improvement of Confidants over Social Links is that there are now various benefits, many of which can be used in battle. Another improvement is that the Confidants are completely voiced, while only certain Social Link lines were voiced.



Persona 5Edit

Similar to Social Link, each relationship with a certain character (or possibly a group) is represented by a major Arcana, ranking up each Confidant grants bonuses to Personas of correlated Arcana: Experience bonus for fusion result; shorter in-game days required for training a Persona in Velvet Room to learn a passive for overcoming its weakness. Ranking up each Confidants also unlocks new ability or benefit which directly affect performance in the Palace.
