Will Arnett to Host MINECON Earth

Microsoft and Mojang have announced that BoJack Horseman star, Will Arnett is to host the first ever MINECON Earth.

MINECON Earth was announced earlier this year as the replacement for the annual MINECON convention which used to be held in London. Rather than it being an event held in one location, MINECON is going digital with MINECON Earth, a new online event that’ll be completely free.

This online event will have all the big announcements and events you’d usually find at the live MINECON events. As for those live events, Microsoft and Mojang announced that there’ll be several smaller events players can attend in several locations, though these are yet to be confirmed.

The latest news however is that BoJack Horseman and The LEGO Batman Movie star, Will Arnett will be the host of the event and will be taking to the virtual stage on November 18.

“My boys and I have so much fun playing Minecraft, but even more than that, I love how Minecraft inspires so much creativity in them. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of MINECON!” he said.

With Arnett, Mojang’s Lydia Winters will also be taking to the stage as they celebrate one of the biggest games in history.

MINECON Earth is set to take place on November 18 at 5PM GMT. This 90 minute livestream will feature entertainment, humour, and announcements, similar to those from previous events.

All of this can be watched for free via Mixer, Twitch, or via various viewing parties being held.
