Also, you know, probably the best Trilogy in all of gaming, for a generation of people who might not have even been born before the 1st one (arguably one of the greatest games of all time) was released. You're right that's pretty much nothing
Congrats to the series on all of its acclaim. All that acclaim probably played into Nintendo's decision to release this trilogy on the WiiU eShop in January 2015 for $10.

Sure, it's more than "nothing." It's also not some sort of megaton that needs to be saved for E3 in a year that's already pretty packed with software. It wasn't the last two times Nintendo sold this trilogy as a package over the past decade, and I don't see what's changed about the world since 2015 (other than Xbone BC making a mockery of the remaster), that would inflate Metroid's impact.

For me the biggest indicator of a direct happening soon is the silence regarding Joker release on Smash. I kinda expect him this month.
He will most likely be dropped into the game during the Persona concert. The real question is will Nintendo wait to release 3.0 until then or release 3.0 before Joker.

Did they show Town in the last Direct? Since it's made by Game Freak, will they announce trailers on their own par like with Pokémon?
We haven't seen it since September. Game Freak won't show it on their own like they do with Pokemon. They'll work with Nintendo to show it in directs.

A port I hope we get is Xenoblade Chronicles from the Wii. Takahashi said money is an issue for XCX, but he never said there was issues for XC to be remastered. Though I would think that would cost same money issues.

This persona concert thing just sounds like Smash fans latching onto a “relevant” date like they always do only to be proven wrong later, unless I’m missing something?

Like I remember all those “today is Zelda’s 25th anniversary, we HAVE to get a veteran!” and the likes during Smash 4’s POTDs.

I would absolutely love to see a visual makeover of XB with Shulk using his XB2 model. I love that design, it works so well for him.

A XCX port seems like a pretty obvious filler title. The issue probably isn't that Nintendo doesn't want to give Monolith Soft the money for a port but that Nintendo won't pay for a port yet.

Because we know Persona 5S info is coming on the 25th too. If the S version is for Switch then dropping Joker around the same time seems likely seeing as Joker is scheduled for some time in April.

The difference is that the Atlus is using Persona concert a venue to show off their new Persona 5 projects, Persona 5 The Royal and Persona 5 S, and if datamining is to believed, Smash Joker has some stuff that ties into Persona 5 The Royal.

imagine if 5S is a straight port and smash has material that connects to a PS4 exclusive release
 
I don't see Joker launching later in April just because of the P5 announcements scheduled then. A Smash character has never been shown off by another company before, why start now? If he does launch in late April it won't be because of that imo.

Probably Zelda and Mario VR previews
I doubt they're gonna wanna demo that before it's available. The impressions would probably do enough to convince people that were going to buy Labo VR for these experiences that it's not worth the trouble.

Now, will they be demonstrating or previewing these experiences with the new VR hardware they announce on Thursday? That could be a possibility.

What new VR hardware?
