The official MineCraft convention MineCon is headed to Europe. Mojang announced today that they'll be holding MineCon 2012 at Disneyland Paris this fall.
This will be the second ever MineCon. The first took place last year in Las Vegas. It featured keynote speeches, contests, and exhibits related to the indie building game. The after-party featured a performance by deadmau5.
MineCon 2012 will take place November 24th and 25th. That's the Saturday and Sunday right after Thanksgiving here in the States. They're not the most convenient dates for Americans but then again, neither is the Paris venue. This year is catering to the European fan base. I wonder if they'll keep switching back and forth between continents each year in the future or if they'll hold separate, regional conventions.
Attendees of last year's MineCon were given alpha keys for Mojang's upcoming strategy game Scrolls. The alpha test finally began earlier this summer. Presumably Mojang will hand out a few more keys for that game or some other project like 0x10c.
