Streaming star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins will be featured in yet another video game — RAID: Shadow Legends.

Ninja already has his own skin in Fortnite, and now it’s been announced he’ll be making a cameo in yet another game. No, it’s not Warzone or Apex Legends, instead it’s a game you’ve probably heard of if you’ve ever seen an ad on YouTube.

That’s right, Ninja will be coming to RAID: Shadow Legends as a playable character in an update on July 16, according to information posted by gamespot.

Ninja’s character will be a… ninja in RAID. What, you were expecting a knight or something?

We’ll get more details about Ninja’s character in RAID — which we admit does look pretty cool — during a livestream on July 19, and the streamer seems excited about the cameo as well.


“The wings are absolutely perfect, I’m a huge Sephiroth fan, so that was my little inspiration behind what it would look like,” Ninja said about his character. “They absolutely nailed it.”

Ss soon as images of Ninjas cameo in RAID started coming out, so did the jokes, but mainly people seemed to be in disbelief that Blevins was in yet another game.

“I wake up to Ninja in Raid Shadow Legends and LeBron in Fortnite,” one Twitter user said. “I’m going back to bed.”

Ninja in RAID and Lebron in Fortnite, what is the world coming to?

If you want to try out Ninja’s character for yourself, he’ll arrive in RAID on July 16 like we mentioned earlier, and he’ll be completely free for all players for three months.

Even if you don’t download RAID to try out his new character, Ninja’s livestream on July 19 introducing it — where the streamer kind of resembles an extra in Star Trek — looks like it should be at least pretty entertaining.
