Ninja has hinted that hes set for movie and TV appearances soon after his unexpected move from Twitch to Mixer.

Hes continuing his world domination and were not even mad.

The gamer – real name Tyler Blevins – took to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new book, when the chats turned to his future goals.

I cant say anything specific but, for people who are watching, keep an eye out on all the screens, both big and small, he advised, giving the host a big wink as he gasped: Really?

Movies and TV? Jimmy asked, with the Fortnite legend leaping out of his seat and pretending to leave.

That was impressive that I guessed what that was! the presenter added, with Ninja agreeing: That was incredible, that was amazing.

It wasnt exactly the most subtle hint but were definitely not complaining.

The pair seemed to get along like a house on fire, with Tyler coming for Jimmys gaming skills (or lack thereof) at one point.

Speaking about his new book Get Good: My Ultimate Guide to Gaming, the 28-year-old said: If you read it, you might be able to beat me at a game on the show.

Please, thats never gonna happen, Jimmy admitted, with Tyler agreeing: No, realistically though…

The shade of it all.

After making his name on Twitch, Ninja made the unexpected move to Mixer earlier this year.

It wasnt all smooth sailing, with the streamer slamming Twitch, accusing it of promoting porn on his old profile.
