Twitch has decided to immortalize the legends of some of its most popular streamers. A few days ago, the streaming platform shared an animated short, ‘The Legend of Ninja’, on its Twitter account. The Twitch streamer also shared the clip on his Twitter account, informing fans that the streaming platform has big plans.

As it turns out, Ninja isn’t the only streamer whose legend Twitch is celebrating. Following him, Twitch also revealed similar animated shorts of Pokimane and TimTheTatman, two more of the most popular streamers. The animated shorts are a part of the new Twitch advertisement content alongside custom merch inspired by all the streamers.

Ninja, Pokimane, and Tim might be three of the most popular streamers on Twitch, but the platform certainly has many more similar streamers. The likes of Shroud, xQc, Ludwig, Summit1g, Nickmercs, and many others equally define the success of Twitch. Naturally, if the platform has decided to dedicate a tribute to some of its most popular streamers, these names might be upcoming.

As of now, Twitch has only shared the ‘Legends’ of Ninja, Poki, and Tim. Out of the three of these, Ninja and Tim have also announced that limited edition vinyl figures of similar themes will also go on sale soon. However, Pokimane, along with her animated short, accidentally or intentionally, shared some interesting information.

Twitch animated shorts to be displayed at Times Square

All the excitement probably led to Pokimane sharing more than she was supposed to. Unlike the two streamers before her who summarized their shorts and advertized their vinyl figures, Pokimane chose to talk about something else.

According to Poki’s tweet, Twitch will be displaying the animated shorts at Times Square. Previously, we have seen Ninja’s New Year bash event and Corpse Husband’s tweet at Times Square. This would be the third time Twitch streamers would make it to the popular location.

All of this perfectly describes the trajectory with which streaming as a profession has been growing. Every new day attracts more streamers to the platform and thousand more fans to streamers. With Twitch taking to Times Square to advertise the legend of some of its most popular streamers, it will definitely attract more people to the platform, and more so to their streams.
