NZ gamers will see how good (or bad) they are at the game in a weekly show called 'The Night Squad'.  Gaming personality Amy Potter will be the host of the show and she has been streaming gaming herself over the last couple of years. She said: "I am incredibly excited to launch The Night Squad to New Zealand! Video games are a huge part of my life, and there is no greater feeling than sharing my passion for this media with others."  "Gaming is absolutely for everybody, but sometimes it can be misunderstood. It makes me very happy to be able to showcase video games, and entertain an audience that may have never watched someone else play before! The Night Squad is kind of like a radio show, where instead of playing music we play games ." Each week there should be a new set of celebrities for you to watch playing Fortnite. The Night Squad will air on Twitch starting at 7pm on June 6th, 2018. The show will run for eight weeks after that and you can watch all of the fun via  For more information about The Night Squad visit The event will also be helping to donate to charity each week.
