Today we have some very interesting news to share with you about VTubers, also known as Virtual Youtubers, in Japan.

NIJISANJI’s videos feature 3D characters narrating and reacting to actual gameplay and for some reason they have been resonating really well with Japanese gamers. Some videos that have done well feature VTubers playing Ring Fit Adventure and Pokemon Sword/Shield.
