G4 Is Adding A Popular vTuber To Its Presenter Line-Up
The gaming industry has undoubtedly changed a great deal since the G4 TV network shut down back in 2014. As ample evidence to that fact, it’s been announced that G4 is adding popular vTuber CodeMiko to its line-up of presenters for when the gaming network returns later this year.
As reported by IGN, G4 has tapped vTuber CodeMiko to act as a presenter and interviewer when the network makes its triumphant return. “In just a few short months, CodeMiko has carved out a wildly successful niche on Twitch,” said G4’s head of content Kevin Sabbe. “CodeMiko will bring her revolutionary interview experience to G4 and help the network push the boundaries of gaming entertainment.”

For those unfamiliar with CodeMiko, she is the vTuber creation of an individual known as The Technician, who wears a motion capture suit that transmits data through Unreal Engine, which is then mapped onto a real-time digital avatar of CoeMiko. This results in fairly life-like movement that thankfully doesn’t get too close to the uncanny valley. At the time of publishing CodeMiko has racked up over 680k followers on Twitch within the span of 4-5 months.
CodeMiko is best known for her weird interviews with popular gaming, internet, and content creator personalities, which is what G4 appears to be tapping the vTuber to do in an official capacity. “On G4, I’ll be interviewing some of the most notable names in gaming and entertainment,” said CodeMiko. “I’ll also be interviewing people like Kevin Pereira and Adam Sessler.”
G4 will be returning later this year.
