Taikō Risshiden V (太閤立志伝 V?) is the latest title of a Japanese video game series (turn-based sandbox role-playing video games/turn-based strategy) produced by Koei. It was released on PC and PlayStation 2 in 2004 followed by a port to PlayStation Portable in 2009. The first title of the series was released on NEC PC-9801 in 1992 followed by ports to Super Famicom and Genesis/Mega Drive. 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 eight roles (in addition to the 3 roles in IV, samurai, ninja, businessman, the new roles are blademaster, pirate, doctor, tea master, and blacksmith) and living that life through minigames, resource management, and strategic thinking. The player will meet various historical figures of the 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. Pirates and Businessmen can 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.
