BikkuriMan 2000 Viva! Festival! (ビックリマン 2000 ビバ！フェスチバァ！) is a Party video game published by SEGA released on May 2nd, 2000 for the SEGA Dreamcast.
There’s not many games that are descended from an Anime series based on a collectible sticker series, that was itself a marketing campaign for a chocolate wafer from a South Korean food company – but Bikkuriman 2000 is. It sounds ludicrous, and the game isn’t exactly normal either. A party style game, you play a series of mini games with the aim of collecting coins to unlock more, and to collect seals (or possible stickers). It’s all very Japanese, a bit mad but colorful and some of the mini games are quite good fun.
The game is one of the few titles which use the NGPC link cable, and can be linked to the NGPC title ‘Bikkuriman 2000 Viva! Pocket Festival!’, presumably to be able to trade over coins or stickers.
