But the 29-year-old, who was famous for his viral reactions to gaming announcements, died tragically last June after being reported as missing.

Etika was known for coining the phrase ‘Joyconboyz’, a reference to the Switch controllers.

And this phrase started trending once again this week after it emerged the Etika Mural in Brooklyn has become a Pokestop in Pokemon Go.

This is an in-game location where players can visit to receive items such as Pokeballs.

The Pokestop features the description: “Etika Mural: Remembering the passing of Etika, JoyconBoyz forever”.

Speaking to the BBC, YouTuber Reversal said this was the “ultimate tribute” to Etika.
