Persona 5 Strikers doesn’t have romances or social links in the traditional sense, but there are a few occasions where you can choose who to spend time with. Sapporo is one of those. Some way through the Phantom Thieves’ road trip you’ll get a bit of downtime in Sapporo, and you can choose who you want to take onto the Ferris wheel. Given how good the dialogue is, as well as the possibility of rewards down the line, it’s a tough decision.
Some of these interactions are a little more romantically inclined than others (most of the females, for instance, will treat it as a date), but pretty much every scene is worth watching for some of the funny reactions, so it’s worth saving and trying them all out.
Persona 5 Strikers – Ferris wheel consequences
In terms of actual benefits, though? Well, you’ll get Bond EXP whoever you take… with one notable exception. I have no idea if this is a bug or not, but taking Makoto on the Ferris wheel seems to offer zero Bond EXP at all. And she honestly responds more favorably to this than most!
As far as I can tell there are no other benefits. You’re not locked out of any future dialogue or choices, nor do you get any special rewards from the person you take. As such (barring that loss of Bond EXP if you take Makoto) you’re free to ride the Ferris wheel with whoever takes your fancy in Persona 5 Strikers.
