This is the dream. Revive the Robos Nintendo!
Ah, I see you're a man of culture as well.
These would make it the best Direct of all time. Add a Mother 1/2/3 remake or compilation and it becomes the best Direct of any timeline.
Forgot about Mother!! I'll add 2 more predictions:
- Mother Trilogy announced, being shadow dropped!!!
- Nintendo announces Father. New series after Mother.

Best timeline
Persona 4 would be a dream, I want to play it so badly but I don't want to buy a Vita.
I feel you! P4 is the only reason I ever considered a Vita, but I don't buy a console for a single game.

I really miss the Vita. I mean, the Switch is basically the Vita now. But Persona 4 Golden + Persona 3 Portable + Guacamelee + Hotline Miami...man, what a great little handheld.

GUYS YOU'RE SETTING YOURSELVES UP FOR DISAPPOINTMENT AGAIN!!

Worst-case predictions are better for your post-Direct mental health - I'll begin:
  • Shadowdrop of first episodes of FFVII and FFIX.
  • Announcement of remaining Smash DLC characters: That guy from Doom, that guy from Minecraft, and due to unexpected popular demand: Waluigi.
  • Announcement of a "Switch Pro" that can only be used chained up to your TV at home with Pro Controllers (buy separately) and will allow 60FPS on BotW. Pokemon Gen 8 will be the first exclusive.
  • No sign of Persona 5, GTA 5, Witcher 3. Only Assassin's Creed 3 will ever get a port.
  • Nintendo announcing that after the "disappointing" Switch sales and 3DS dying, Switch will be their last hardware line. As advised by their investors after the financial success of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp they will bring all their franchises full-mobile free to play from 2020 onwards.

Worst-case predictions are for bums who can't handle mild disappointment, to be frank. And they impose a foul mood on oneself, which I don't think is good for one, either.

I'm very curious to the extent of the Metroid Prime Trilogy HD visual enhancements. I do wonder if they'll go closer to Wind Waker HD with a completely overhauled lighting system or closer to Twilight Princess HD with much improved textures and image quality only.

Don't get your hopes up too much. If super Mario Bros U Deluxe proved anything it's that Nintendo is very confident about releasing "unenhanced"-ports. I wouldn't expect too much

That comparison isn’t quite right.

NSMBUD is a port of a 6 year old game. Metroid Prime Trilogy harks back to 2002 at its oldest.

The comparison should therefore be what Nintendo have done in recent times with games from that much older era when they have a lot more horse power to work with.

The comparison is therefore with the likes of Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD and not with a game which came out within this same generation.

If Nintendo learned their lesson that the 2018 line up was too sparse and that negatively impacted their sales, then this Direct should be packed to show how 2019 will be different.

That's an invalid comparison as NSMBUD was already HD upon initial release, same as DKCTF & MK8.

Better comparison would be the two Zelda HD remasters. Or even the N64 to 3DS releases for the visual upgrades (ignoring resolution); usually they do enhance the games when moving to a significantly more modern & powerful system.
