November 18th is the date to remember, and with MineCon Earth getting closer and closer, Mojang is revealing more and more info! In the last few weeks lots of answered were given; But also more questions arose. And who wouldn’t want to know more about going for a run to Target, Jeb pointing at some images of mobs, or- Well, it depends, but here’s some info for you anyway…

We now know who will be joining Lydia Winters as co-host of MineCon Earth – actor Will Arnett himself! He says he’s keen to develop his Minecraft skills and ”what better way to do that than co-hosting MINECON?”. What a step up from Lego Batman to Minecon Earth..! Let’s just hope that his presenting skills are as good as his acting (or saving Gotham, for all we know!)

You can also now go out and buy your Minecon Earth merch in person from any Target store, in case you’re American and care to get some souvenirs..! As the Mojang staff put it:

So you’ll get fresh air, exercise, and (most importantly) exclusive merch! What’s not to like?

Hmm… well, if you’re a poor peasant like me Or you’re free to go buy it online while stocks last..! It’s your choice; Or don’t bother buying at all.

Anywayyy… Minecraft will get a new visitor, a new mob! A future version will include him, her… or it? Not only that, but the folks at Mojang are letting us players vote for it; There are 4 options, 4 mobs – A, B, C & D – and you’ll be able to vote for your favourite on Minecraft’s Twitter during the MineCon Earth live stream. Let the battle commence – I like the look of mob C! See what they will look like here, and check out for more detailed descriptions of the mobs, with Mob A’s post already there as of 13th November. The rest are a secret… (Unless you’re reading this post in the future, if you know what I mean..!)

As well as that, some more Official Party Viewing Locations have been added to the already big list. Although I’d say they need to add more for Europe before the 18th… No, like seriously! (Unless you’re reading in the future again; And some were added? Would be nice, especially to the Europeans!) So, how will you spend your Saturday? Watching the MineCon stream or doing the usual – laundry, washing up… Come on, the choice is (hopefully) obvious if you’re a fan of Minecraft..!

Scroll into the past on the Blog page, and you will hopefully find the other 3 MineCon Earth posts, revealing more info on the big event.
