Potential Issues[edit | edit source]

There are some potentially serious issues with the PC version of the game which may cause the user problems. For example, there is a glitch that causes the game to consistantly crash in some circumstances on December 17th when someone tries to invite your daughter to a Christmas party. Such issues can be fixed via patches that have been released on the official Japanese website for Princess Maker 5. The FAQ section of the official Japanese Website (which can be translated into English using services such as Google Translate) contains said patches.

Game[edit | edit source]

The game has gained more depth in how the player manages both their own resources and those of their daughter's. Several changes in game play has been made while previous features have been improved to offer more choice for the player.

Setting[edit | edit source]

The change in setting is significant in this game because up until now, all Princess Maker games in the core series have taken place in a fantasy world with European flare. Princess Maker 5 takes place in the modern world, two fictitious areas named Himemiya Machi (姫宮町), which is more like a suburb, and Hamasaki Shi (濱崎市), which is more like downtown. It is assumed that these two areas are located somewhere in Japan.

Due to the modern setting, many possibilities have opened in terms of what your daughter can and cannot do. For example, she now goes to public school and it is mandatory. The possibility to become a female parent has been opened as well (but your daughter's marriage with her parent is only possible when playing as a father)

Plot[edit | edit source]

In the parallel worlds that exist alongside modern Japan, there is unrest in the Human Kingdom, the Realm of Heaven, the Realm of Demons, the Faerie World and the Realm of the Spirits of the Stars. In a show of good faith and an attempt to keep peace and balance in the world, the Human Kingdom decided to crown a princess and eventually a wise Queen who will help pacify each realm. But mysteriously, the candidates for the position of Princess were assassinated one by one. Thus, Cube, a butler and keeper of one of such candidates spirited her away from this world, and erased all memory of her murdered family and torched home so that she might escape the fate of the more unfortunate princesses.

The player is a retired hero from the Human Kingdom, now self-exiled into a foreign world to escape the past. However, when Cube chooses the player as the parent of this girl, the player simply cannot refuse. The conditions are that after eight years, only the girl herself can decide whether she wants to pursue happiness in this world or, if she ever finds out about her past, return to the parallel worlds to claim her throne.

Features[edit | edit source]

A lot of new features have been added to Princess Maker 5. The player's daughter is more realistic than ever with changing interests depending on what she is currently doing at work or at school, and will interact with the environment of her room differently because of her hobbies. Certain small events triggered will prompt you to help her choose a course of action, which will eventually change her disposition to those around her.

She can also fatten, grow taller and show bust size more significantly than before. Events based on these physical stats as well as her hobbies will appear once certain conditions are met. She will also be able to get cavities depending on the kind of items the player feeds her. There are more items than ever to increase stats and decrease stress, but she should watch what she eats in case her weight or cavities get out of hand. Statistics have been changed as well to fit a more modern lifestyle.

The room has also become more interactive. The player's daughter will put up different posters at the head of her bed to indicate her current hobbies. The decorations on the windowsill will change depending on the time of the year. Items and furniture will be added when the player buys them for their daughter. And best of all, a cute little avatar of the player's daughter will be wandering around the room doing the things she loves.

The daughter helps out at a shrine on New Year's.

A system to determine the parent's profession has been put in place as well, but that is only secondary to the fact that the player can now choose to be either a father or a mother. The system to allow the child more or less freedom is also more in depth than before. The parent can choose from a total of six different topics to talk to their daughter about, and the effects will vary depending on multiple statistics and conditions. A different schedule system running on a weekly schedule has replaced the monthly schedule from previous games.

There is a new way of getting rid of the child's stress, as the old rest and vacation system has been pushed the back burner by a free roaming system. The parent will have to take their kids out on the town and try to get rid of her stress with gifts, visits to the amusement parks, restaurants and sites around the city. If the player is up for it (and provided that this function has been unlocked), their can release their child to several parallel worlds to adventure. The adventure system is less intensive than the one in Princess Maker 2, but the battling system is the finest in all of the Princess Maker games so far.

Some features of the older games have been taken out of this game. Festivals where contests are held no longer occur in those formats. They are replaced by individual competitions that stem from her school or additional classes, but there is no real prize money involved. The extra money, though, can come from various events where the player's child might be invited to help out certain characters on special days. Some of these will be triggered automatically while others depend on statistics and events.

Game Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Parent's Profession[edit | edit source]

Besides being able to choose whether to be a mother or a father at the beginning of the game, the player also has the choice of choosing and naming their profession. The player is given the choice of five types of social standings in terms of their profession: Educated Professional, Entrepreneur, Government, Salary man and Freelance. Each profession comes with a level of credibility, which will equal out to how much money the player can borrow before consequences.

After picking one's social standings, the player can then name their profession. The chosen profession modifies the initial hidden stats of the child.

Level Detail Bonus Credit Additional Child Stat
Educated Professional Professors, doctors, politicians, etc. Receives a high and steady paycheck each month for 50000. None High +20 Pride
Entrepreneur Manager of a store or a company. Relatively lower income at first with 40000 yen, but increases to 60000 yen in the fifth year. None High +20 Independance
Government Public services workers. Can be a clerk in a government office or a police officer, it can be any job that receives salary from the government. Although the income is relatively low at 40000 yen throughout, there are two chances of getting a 60000 yen bonus every year. 60000 Yen Medium -20 Flexability
Salary Man People who work in companies. Income is low at first, but will increase due to raises.  Income starts at 30000 yen with two 80000 yen bonuses each year. At the beginning of the fifth year, income increases to 40000 yen and there are two chances of getting 100000 yen bonuses every year. (start) 80000 Yen (5th year) 100000 Yen Medium -20 Independance
Freelancer So called Freelancer is actually any job that doesn't come with a regulated paycheck. This may refer to a Musician, an Athelete, or maybe an author. The amount each month fluctuates from very poor to extremely good. It can vary from 20000 yen a month to 80000 yen a month. None Almost None +20 Flexability

To Provide an example on how your profession will affect your child's initial Statistics: If you give your daughter the Star Sign Capricorn. Her initial Pride score is -5. If you select your job as an "Educated Professional". Your daughter will be given an additional 20 points in her pride which will make her pride overall 15.00 in the beginning of the game.

Monthly Plan[edit | edit source]

Monthly Plan (PM5)

Emily's News[edit | edit source]

A new little quarterly published by a friend of the player's daughter. It includes a headline with news that the player would probably love to know, and dates on sales, events, concerts and much more. The player can set dates with their daughter to go to some of these events through the news page.

Schedule[edit | edit source]

Adventure[edit | edit source]

Status[edit | edit source]

The status of the child is broken down into five sections, three of which (Ability, Personality and Statistics) are number based, one of which is level based (Skills) and the last of which is the profile of the Daughter.

Ability[edit | edit source]

Represents the ability of the child. Lowest value is 0, highest value is 999.

Constitution (体力)

Spirit (精神力)

Athletic Ability (運動能力)

Intelligence (知力)

Charisma (カリスマ)

Refinement (気品)

Charm (魅力)


Personality, Condition and Puberty [edit | edit source]

Measured using a scale. Shows the personality attributes of the child. Lowest value is at -100, and the highest value is at +100. The closer it is to either extreme means that the personality is more slanted towards that side of the scale.

Love (愛情) - increased by giving daughter twice a month/weekly allowances or watching romance movies, talking to Hiroko or Mori, taking music class, working as a babysitter/tutor. Sometimes called Affection.
{C}Morals (道徳心) - Increased by cleaning the beach, talking to Aya, giving her an early curfew, above 30 is required for Gateau to confess his love to your daughter in the Spirit World. It can be decreased by giving your daughter a late curfew, killing monsters when she goes to adventures and talking to Kousei.
{C}Sensitivity (繊細さ) - increased by setting one of her monthly Etiquette plans to "Be polite all the time" or "Be polite to elders first", high Sensitivity (+40-60) enables the daughter to see a mermaid after working in the job the souvenir man offers, a cherry blossom yōkai during the cherry festival in the mountains, a ghost during the "Conquer Your Fear/Guts test" day and Santa Claus while helping to make cakes. The mermaid increases music skill, the cherry blossom yōkai gives you a crystal (+10 refinement and grants access to fairy realm) the ghost tremendously increases your respective highest skill (+50) along with giving you an orb (+10 willpower and grants access to spirit realm) and Santa Claus gives you a random item.

These are not the only personality attributes available, some are simply hidden:

Independence (hidden) - increased by setting Attitude in the monthly plan to "Press your own opinion", talking to Leona and Kousei. It is best to keep this stat low if you want to make the choices for your daughter, such as dates, meetings, marriage proposals, friendship events, scout events, birthday presents for friends, etc

Flexibility (hidden) - increased by weekly allowances and having daughter be polite all the time - Needs at least +10 to trigger Emily's soulmate event.

Sociability (hidden) - increased by letting your daughter have a longer curfew and by setting her study plans to either studying in moderation or prioritise playing. - Unknown effect on gameplay.

Logic (hidden) - Unknown effect on gameplay.

Pride (hidden) - increases if daughter does really well at an activity (gold star), decreases if she does poorly (red circle); causes her to continuosly buy things without permission (?) - Unknown effect on gameplay.

Creativity (hidden) - Increases if your daughter takes on art classes. (Needs confirmation what decreases creativity as it is possible to still have 0 creativity after taking art classes) - Unknown effect on gameplay.

All these stats can be seen through the fortune teller.
