Professional gamer and internet personality, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, has been streaming video games since 2009. His prowess led him to becoming one of the most successful and well-known gamer in the community, and he is now willing to share some tips on how he got where he is today.
Ninka currently has over 21 million subscribers on YouTube and earns over $500,000 per month from streaming Fortnite, a battle royale style of online game. As his popularity grew so did his income, and Ninja donated a lot of his tournament winnings to charities including a £250,000 prize he shared with DJ Marshmello.
In August Ninja will release two helpful books for the aspiring gamer- one full of advice on how to ‘get good’ at gaming, and the other a notebook with stickers and helpful hints. In December a graphic novel is planned for release:
Ninja: The Most Dangerous Game is co-written by Justin Jordan and illustrated by Felipe Magaña. The arty fiction follows Ninja after he receives a mysterious email inviting him to “an impossibly realistic, challenging, and addictive game.“
According to Emma Smith, editorial direct at publisher Ebury, this has been in the pipelines for a while now:
“As a team we’ve been pursuing Ninja for some time and we are thrilled that in Get Good he has produced a hugely entertaining but incredibly practical book about the art and science of gaming. It is going to give players across the world exactly what they want—the inside track on how to be the next Ninja.”
All three books are available to pre-order.
This is one of the huge projects I've been working on and I'm so excited to finally announce my first book NINJA: GET GOOD! An ultimate guide to gaming that teaches players how to become unstoppable.

“Tyler Blevins (aka ‘Ninja’) – the undisputed champion of the world’s most popular online battle royale – enjoys a captivated audience of millions as he does what he loves: decimating the competition. At the end of one fateful stream, however, Ninja receives a strange email with a link to an impossibly realistic, challenging, and addictive game that simultaneously explodes in popularity. As the best player in the world, Ninja’s unable to resist a challenge and soon discovers that there’s more to this game than meets the eye. Teleported into the battle royale’s universe, a digitized Ninja must start from scratch, finding a way to win the game – and save the world. Along the way, he meets valuable friends and ultimately fulfills a destiny larger than he ever could have imagined. Set in a fictional world created by notable comics writer Justin Jordan and comics artist Felipe Magaña, this is the first in a graphic novel series that offers a new way for Ninja fans of all ages to experience the gaming streamer’s unmatched wits and skill.”
