In the distant past of 2017, the Japanese Badge Arcade held its first and last april fool's gag. The joke, framed as a "Badge Arcade direct" announced that a new game staring Ashley and four new friends (the weapon-totting Claudia, NotPenny Anna, the cook Coco and Vanessa, who owns a megaphone) would be released for the 3DS on a timely release for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The would-be game had Ashley 'n' frenz warping to the other side of the galaxy after an accident in "astronaut school" and have to deal with unruly aliens while trying to get back home. Illustrated with concept art of the characters, the game had no gameplay described beside a vague statement the protagonists "must fight [the aliens] or become friends with them and return to earth". The presentation ended with the bunny admiting it was fake and invite the player to make noise on social medias and Miiverse.
I found that invitation intriguing, as well as the joke's focus on promoting and developing brand new characters. On one hand, I wouldn't be surprised if the same person at Nintendo who promoted Ashley so much in the past years was itching to make a game starring her and comissioned some stealth market research to see if their pitch resonated with people. On the other, I'm probably being ridiculous and conflating my desires with reality (not just because I want a Ashley game but also because Claudia seems to be a really rad character imo).
But yeah, Crazy Galaxy, is it or was it an actual project or not? And do you want it?
