During his September 30 episode of ‘Last Week I Asked You’, YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg made a surprise announcement while in Japan to cap off the insane year he’s had, fueled by the success of his Minecraft series.

PewDiePie has had one hell of a year so far with him passing the 100 million YouTube subscribers milestone on August 25, and marrying his best friend Marzia ‘CutiePie’ Bisognin just days earlier on August 19.

However, much of his channel’s success has largely been a result of his return to gaming, when he launched his wildly popular Minecraft series in June. And now the Swede and his wife are hitting another major milestone in their lives, which he announced in his latest episode while in Japan.

PewDiePie’s major announcement

While Pewds visiting Japan has become an annual tradition, the Sweded ended his makeshift episode of LWIAY with a huge announcement when he revealed to his audience that him and Marzia had actually bought a house in Japan.

“Hey, remember a while back when last time I was in Japan, and I was like “I would really like to live here” … Well, we bought a house here, yay! So we are just here for a couple of days setting up. That’s why I don’t have my whole set up and everything is terrible. I just wanted to say thank you, it’s a dream come true!” he said.

The Swede and his wife have gone to Japan on numerous occasions over the years, and frequently uploaded videos of their adventures. But in their April 15 vlog, the YouTube star admitted that they were visiting to see if they could move there.

“I really want to do it. I don’t want to look back in a couple of years and wonder what would have been. And I’m in a really unique position to do something like this and want to try it!” he exclaimed. 

At the time, PewDiePie had admitted that he and his wife were feeling overwhelmed by the steps it would take to immigrate to a new country together, but it looks like they overcame those hurdles.

Minecraft has led to insane growth

The 29-year-old’s channel has seen an insane growth since June when he announced his return to gaming with his Minecraft series, which has taken the internet by storm.

Since then, he’s seen his channel gaining double the views, as he went from 300 million to close to 600 million monthly watches in those three months. And according to Social Blade, the YouTuber gained close to four million subscribers – and that’s not even counting September.

While it’s unclear if Pewds will be living full time in Japan, this is undoubtedly a huge step for him and his wife, making yet another major milestone for the YouTuber.

Many people have called out Jale Paul after he mopped the floor with Nate Robinson, but it’s hard to name a better candidate than NHL star Evander Kane, who said he’s keen to “wreck” him in the ring. 

Jake Paul set the world on fire after knocking out Nate Robinson in two rounds during the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout. He was the bigger and more experienced fighter, but he still put on an absolute clinic.

In his post-fight interview, Jake Paul was riding a high and laid down a series of ambitious challenges. He listed everyone from Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis to his brother, Logan Paul.

However, other big names have challenged him, too, including Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji. But while they would all be formidable foes, NHL star Evander Kane has eclipsed them all after he let loose on social media.

Evander Kane, an experienced fighter in his own right, flirted with the idea of taking on Jake Paul himself. 

“Jeeezzzz maybe I should take on Jake Paul next,” he said. It’s been liked almost 15,000 times, and hundreds of fans left comments urging him to go ahead with it.

All the hype prompted him to follow up on the tweet and double down on his challenge. “Yo Jake Paul, I’d wreck ya,” he said. “Easy to beat up guys with no experience and much smaller.” 

Evander Kane also went a step further and named a time and a place. “August 31st, 2021 Vegas,” he said. “We can see if you really about that action.”

Unfortunately, Jake Paul hasn’t responded yet. To be fair, he’s probably still celebrating and figuring out what to do next.

“Waiting for that answer,” Kane added, while sharing his previous post. Unfortunately, all that he can do at this point is play the waiting game.

Jake Paul is hot property at the moment; it seems like everyone wants a piece of him. In the end, though, the ball is in his court, and he’ll likely make a decision based on what’s best for him.

Still, Kane is one of the more exciting prospective opponents he could face. The thought of them fighting is generating a lot of buzz, and it’s gaining more traction as time goes on.
