We're not sure who he is, but his name RULES.

If you can't tell by now, we dearly love our Neo Geo Pocket Colors here at Gamers Republic. So, when SNK Japan announces new games, we can't help but report on them, even it's something that probably won't make it to the U.S. Such is the case with Bikkuri Man 2000: Viva Pocket Festival. If you're wondering what the heck Bikkuri Man is, it's decribed by SNK as "variety entertainment." Basically it's a bunch of mini-games in the form of fun park attractions, ranging from shooting to baseball. If you do well in these games, you're rewarded with Bikkuri stickers, and the object, of course, is to collect 'em all. You can trade them with friends via the Neo Geo's Link Cable or download data to the Japanese Dreamcast version of Bikkuri Man. You can even collect special gems that open up new features when linked to the DC version. Bikkuri Man 2000 is scheduled for a March 16 release.
