Taikō Risshiden V (太閤立志伝5 ?) is a Japanese video game series (turn-based sandbox role-playing video games/turn-based strategy) produced by Koei. It was later re-released on the Wii Virtual Console on September 1, 2009, ported from the Super Famicom version.

The name of the game roughly means "the Taikō's success story". The games involve the player taking on the role of a character from the Momoyama period in one of seven roles (samurai, warrior, pirate, ninja, businessman, doctor, tea man, and blacksmith) and living that life through minigames, resource management, and strategic thinking. A good player will meet various historical figures of the era. This game combines ROTK 7, 8, and 10 and put them in one game set in the sengoku era.


The game follows the card system used in Taikō Risshiden IV with expanded play of some of the previous professions. Additionally, there are an increased number of playable warlords (800 people in the Windows version, 860 in the PS2 version). Also, people other than the military commander may appear such as missionaries, monks, and wives. In this installment of the game it is possible to travel to four overseas bases: Naha (Ryukyu, now part of Japan), Busan (Korea), Ningbo (Ming China), and Luzon (nowadays the Philippines).

The military commander graphics changed from manga style to a graphic novel style, and Nobunaga's Ambition-type gameplay is seen. Had to be performed each time the mini-games in the case of internal affairs and studying in the previous work further, but (unless you have aligned the conditions in the PS2 version or later), omitted setting also added mini-games in this work. However it is necessary to perform a mini-game, even though the abbreviated set at the time of some events, and also becomes more conforming to the ability value for the technique of the player is not reflected in the results of that case. Was in the PS2 version of the previous work still further, elements that new mode is added by the acquisition bill number increase is also equipped with the Win version in this work. In other works Koei Power Up Kit warlords data editor feature that is often added by also be added by collecting the tags of all in this work. the creation of new military commander the player is made to appear in the game as fictional military commander of their own, they did not choose only from the graphics that have been pre-determined in the previous work, but his face like a combination of parts and accessories face in this work I was able to create a. Also play with the women warlords or even become possible over the first series, the new military commander other than yourself have or even come to be made to appear to a maximum 40 people at the same time.


The period culminated with a series of three warlords, Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu, who gradually unified Japan. After Tokugawa Ieyasu's final victory at the siege of Osaka in 1615, Japan settled down into several centuries of peace under the Tokugawa Shogunate.

Character creation[edit]

For even more replay value, there’s a fairly robust character creation system where you can create and insert into the game world to interact or choose as your main character. It’s probably even more impressive when you consider that the character customization option is done using 2D art rather than 3D models, so the game developers must have put a lot of work into drawing many possible portrait combinations to choose from.

Type of play style[edit]

Play and introduction to and merchants ninja was possible to samurai other than in previous work, the regular ending and not prepared to samurai other than the Win version, main was a warrior to the last play. Play with the forces of other samurai is substantial in this work. The How To Play power play which is the core business can be roughly divided into Occupation: play (samurai-ninja-pirate-merchant can not be serve concurrently with other, but regular ending which is the best on earth is present), and the sideline (swordsman-doctor, blacksmith, master of tea ceremony: two types of) can concurrently serve as the core business there. You can play from the beginning Kinoshita Tokichiro addition to (samurai play direction), Hattori Hanzo (Ninja play direction) Kuki Yoshitaka (pirate play direction) barn Sukezaemon (merchant play direction) Yagyu Muneyoshi 5 (Swordsman play direction) It's people, but the scenario increases or by to gather the card along with the progress of the game, part of the new military commander or more, and is adapted to or able to play hero in another. Note When facing each in five of the aforementioned "recommended play", according to the "Taiko Risshiden V Maniacs," "great erudition old man" (such as when social status was go up and receive the master's orders inexperienced in the back set true identity " south Total Satomi Hakkenden of " 丶大priest ) appeared to us to advice to play. The example case of a doctor, sometimes it is possible to prolong the death of a person susceptible to disease itself as well as hardly to disease, and capitalize the force play occupation play. Also in addition to the play which is prepared in advance, such as travelers, raver-Tsujigiri how to proceed by the player, play a variety of styles are possible. The parameters "fame" and "infamy" is present in this work, etc. to get to win the warlords high skills on the individual match and "Swordsman" or the like (individual competition, the title tag that is eye-catching in a good way (The attack military commanders, the requester does not increase if you were asked to (ninja crowd to sabotage), to encourage the rebellion boss that it threatens rebellion, "fame" is, at the time of the practice bad behavior if a) "notorious" is higher if a), and the like lay it on the last line of giving a medicine that does not work. Working in positive game may work negatively also is depending on the data of the two. For example, get to defeated in tavern or inn "fame" is high, get to align to the castle, the benefits of such Moraeru by clinging even busy there, but the introduction to the ninja can not be by known face, it is not necessarily only benefits such as more likely to be attacked by a ninja. On the other hand there is a disadvantage likely refused the officer "notorious" is high, can be easily targeted by military commander of the swordsman class on the street, residents stability and likely to fall, but over there without fear even met raiders Sometimes Te run away. Both go down over time in the game, but by making a donation at the temple is also lowered bad name.

Field-siege previous work " IV for which has been a card battle in the "element of luck was interposed in terms of card draw, but in this film what things such as skills and feats bills and as (card) expression is but elements card battle no longer. Individual match Individual competition was the format kill with the help of mystique which moves by predicting the motion of the other, there are many. Weapon that can be used in the previous work was only swords, but it has increased six of swords, spears bitter nothing, bow-Kusarigama-gun in this work. Characteristics of each weapon has a following. Swords We can not only attack close but kind of mystique that can be used in many cases. "Martial arts" is affected. Kuna Attack a wide range of long distance from short range of the weak power. "Ninjutsu" is affected, mystique can be earned in the village of Shinobi. Spear Since the middle distance can only attack, a pause is important. "Martial arts" is affected. Bow Long-distance weapon, I stiff in the form of take after one turn defense posture which was.

"Yell" is incremented by one further by or perform (including rigid state after the attack with a bow-gun) defense increases by one per turn each, without moving or under attack from the enemy. To induce the enemy (largess of enhanced version also appeared in the PS2 version) and a toss of a coin can be in learning he studied to the merchant, to recover the strength in hemostasis learning possible he studied to the doctor, to the ninja of some village such as withdrawal in the art of disappearance a possible acquisition in the study under, feats wearing in other professions can take advantage of.

Pirates strong on the sea in reverse, it would weaken the tin when you landed much so, it is necessary to devise a tactic. System of feats differ PS2 version and version Win, Win version is enabled feats feats only use number of times corresponding to the "military science". It is also possible to use a special ability continuously, but can be used only once for one field in one. On the other hand PS2 version Iki reservoir increase each turn "feats" (usually increased by one, but two more if you wait on the spot, 10 to increase) and in the form that consumes it, depending on the type. Can be used continuously is difficult, it is possible many times using the same feat. The field map is also smaller than the Win version, the effect of some battle bill has also been changed. Some one unchanged also affected smaller the map.

There is also a Karamete to other, but can not be placed branch of the army is not a pirate or ninja. If the hero of feudal lords who belong, it is also possible to attack from Karamete by to ask for reinforcements to pirate or ninja. Further (and it may not possible due to event battle) can also be simplified battle can delegate all units if not required tactical particularly offensive castle. It is also possible to Rakujo by (base or other, snip) or to retreat or destroyed the corps commander in the feat of strength is to attack the, or to 0 castle defense degree castle, but residents on to drain the troops stability is also lower. Negotiation part is made much in this work, it is possible to drop the castle without deteriorating the security thereby. (In some cases can not be negotiated by the event battle) that bargaining outside the palace retreat and surrender depending on the tactical situation, such as a cease-fire commitments goods and provision is made possible as content negotiation. That can be used by using the number of times corresponding to the "tactics" in Win version is the same as field for feats, it is able to be many times using the same tag unlike field. The same as the field in the PS2 version. In addition it was also possible after dropping the castle, dropping the castle of another continuously by issuing instructions divert In previous work, but the operation until you return to the castle after being Rakujo in the Win version of this work I began to not accept.
