Who Is Ninja?
For those of you who have just joined in on the fun, Ninja is one of the most popular gamers in the world. His real name is Tyler Blevins.
Ninja is a former Halo gamer who has become Twitch’s new success story with his Ninja streams of Fortnite: Battle Royale. With his colorful personality, easygoing style, and incredible talent, Ninja is the undisputed Fortnite champion right now.
And, it doesn’t stop there!
As Twitch’s most popular streamer, 26-year-old Ninja has three million Twitch followers. He also has a whopping four million subscribers on YouTube! He’s new to Instagram but already has half a million subscribers there, too.
Ninja explained why he thinks Fortnite is one of the best games ever and said, “Fortnite really is just the perfect storm of a game. You have the fact that it’s free-to-play, on almost every platform, and everything about the game is enjoyable.”
“The lobbies are quick, fights are fun, building adds the skill gap, weapons are unique, and the color variances add that “OMG gold scar” epic feeling. The treasure chests’ humming sound all the way to the headshot “pa dink” noise, it’s just perfect,” Ninja added.
Ninja and Drake Playing Fortnite!
It all started with Drake following Ninja’s Instagram.
The Internet was buzzing with rumors that Drake and Ninja would soon join forces, but much of it was written off as hype.
Fans just couldn’t believe it when the hype turned to reality on Wednesday night, and Drake joined Ninja on Fortnite. What?!
Twitter was reeling with the news as both Drake and Ninja became trending topics within minutes of streaming the game live.
With super high expectations for the coolest duo in the world, they unfortunately weren’t able to win their first game. But they had better luck the second time around when Ninja killed the last two opponents in Wailing Woods to bring home a win.
