Ninja has hinted that he’s set for movie and TV appearances soon after his unexpected move from Twitch to Mixer.
He’s continuing his world domination and we’re not even mad.
The gamer – real name Tyler Blevins – took to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new book, when the chats turned to his future goals.
‘I can’t say anything specific but, for people who are watching, keep an eye out on all the screens, both big and small,’ he advised, giving the host a big wink as he gasped: ‘Really?’
‘Movies and TV?’ Jimmy asked, with the Fortnite legend leaping out of his seat and pretending to leave.
‘That was impressive that I guessed what that was!’ the presenter added, with Ninja agreeing: ‘That was incredible, that was amazing.’
It wasn’t exactly the most subtle hint but we’re definitely not complaining.
The pair seemed to get along like a house on fire, with Tyler coming for Jimmy’s gaming skills (or lack thereof) at one point.
Speaking about his new book Get Good: My Ultimate Guide to Gaming, the 28-year-old said: ‘If you read it, you might be able to beat me at a game on the show.’
‘Please, that’s never gonna happen,’ Jimmy admitted, with Tyler agreeing: ‘No, realistically though…’
The shade of it all.
After making his name on Twitch, Ninja made the unexpected move to Mixer earlier this year.
It wasn’t all smooth sailing, with the streamer slamming Twitch, accusing it of ‘promoting porn’ on his old profile.
The drama prompted a direct apology from the CEO of the platform, who admitted there were ‘no excuses’.
Nevertheless, the star has seen success after success, racking up millions of subscribers in the space of weeks and recently announcing his new partnership with Adidas.
Celebrating the two million mark back in August, he told fans: ‘Today we hit 2 million followers on @WatchMixer in less than a month! Absolutely out of this world.
‘My goal on mixer is not to get more viewers than everyone, but to try and lift as many streamers up with me and bring as much attention to this amazing platform as possible.’
