The launch of Minecraft: Story Mode is closing in. Telltale and YouTube Gaming are planning a huge event to capitalize on the buzz, promising the “world’s largest let’s play” of the series’ first episode.

The Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California is set to be packed on October 12 with Telltale fans, YouTubers, and some of the series cast and crew to help direct the first episode, “Order of the Stone.” The Arclight currently holds over 800 guests. Fans who can’t make it into the theater will be able to stream the event on the YouTube Gaming channel the same day at 7 p.m. eastern.

No confirmation on attendees is available, but the series cast includes comedian Patton Oswalt, Ashley Johnson (The Last of Us), comedian Brian Posehn, Billy West (Futurama), Corey Feldman (The Goonies), and Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Playhouse).

 

Our Take
It would be interesting to hear the stats on the largest group let's plays to see if any record is actually being set, but a massive crowd experience for Minecraft: Story Mode sounds awesome. If it's anything like those classic midnight cult film screenings, this should be a blast. Fingers crossed enough of the cast's more comedic members show up to poke fun.
