Twitch streamer and immensely popular Fortnite star Tyler "Ninja" Blevins recently announced he will be hosting a 12-hour New Years live stream from New York's Time Square. The event will be run by Blevin's sponsor Red Bull and will stream directly from Ninja's personal Twitch channel. According to Blevin "“This is just my ultimate NYE Fortnite LAN party with some of my best friends and a few surprises that I hope we as a community can have a lot of fun with.”
The New Years live stream will also feature a series of notable guests as Blevin's rings in the new year for time zones around the world. Blevin's also hopes that this New Year live stream will bring gaming further into the mainstream, and will hopefully build a new tradition around late night New Year's gaming.
