Ninja Kicks Off the Year With a Series of Dojo Sessions

Published 01/06/2021, 4:12 AM EST


2020 was a magnificent year for video games and, more so, for streamers. Several streamers saw a massive surge in views and subscribers as the world found solace in video games to deal with the ongoing pandemic. Just a few days back, Dr Disrespect announced that he has several hidden projects that will come out sooner rather than later. Ninja, too, started off 2021 with incredible news for his fans.

In addition, Ninja will also give out streaming tips to amateur streamers and we can also expect him to shed more light on his play-style and strategies. Ninja, over the last few years, has dipped his feet in several high-profile titles.

However, it’s safe to assume that he became a household name because of his insane Fortnite clips that broke the internet and eventually earned him the honor of having his own skin in the battle royale. Following recent trends, he also started streaming Fall Guys and can be seen streaming Valorant now and then.

Ninja had a rather eventful year

Mixer shut down last year and there was a huge debate around Ninja’s future. He streamed on Twitch for the first time after making a move to Mixer in August last year. He also streamed on YouTube, which gathered over 4 million views in no time. However, he still streamed as a free agent with no sign of a future deal with either platform.

But it wasn’t long before he announced his exclusive deal with Twitch. It is the platform where everything started for the Fortnite prodigy, so the move wasn’t as surprising.

The gamer turned streamer also signed a deal with the Creative Arts Agency.  It has represented hundreds of top names across the movie, music, television, and sports industries. The agency has also ventured onto the online platform by signing big names such as Logan Paul and Dr Disrespect.

Ninja has often spoken about his love for Hollywood and has also played a cameo in several TV shows and a cameo in Ryan Reynolds’ movie, Free Guy.

Sadly, last year also saw Ninja taking a break from his beloved Fortnite and he wasn’t alone as several other streamers followed suit. The reason for this hiatus was the game’s failure to strike a balance between casual and competitive gaming. However, Ninja made a return after the announcement of Chapter 2: Season 5 and also grabbed a Victory Royale on his return.

With how things are shaping up, it is safe to assume that Ninja has some glorious plans for the year. The Dojo Sessions just reiterate that the process has begun and we’re bound to hear more in the coming days.
