BlizzCon, QuakeCon, Genghis Khan – what's next? As with all things, Notch has the answer. Coming soon to a Las Vegas near (or incredibly far away from) you: MineCon. It's a convention! About Minecraft! If you thought your meticulous cosplay of Minecraft's main character was a unique work of human ingenuity, prepare to be severly disappointed.
“For me, MineCon is about celebrating the full release of Minecraft,” Notch told PC Gamer. “I’m really looking forward to getting up on stage and pushing the button to upload the final build.”
“We’ll just go back home and keep working on Minecraft directly after MineCon, but it does represent a huge milestone where the game finally leaves beta, something we’d never been able to do without our fans, so it feels natural to celebrate it with them.”
Notch has picked Mandalay Bay as his venue, and the convention will run from November 18-19. Tickets and details are set to go live next week.
Now then, if you'll excuse us, we have to get back to work on our block costume. It's simple, topical, and only 40 percent duct tape. There's a chance we might be mistaken for Solid Snake, but that's a risk we're more-than-willing to take.
