This is one of my many deep thoughts. As I played Star Allies, I noticed something strange in Francisca's pause screen description:
“Bonjam. Can it be? Frosty Francisca from Kirby Star Allies is your new ally?! Indeed, this cool character is known for swiftly encasing her enemies in ice and keeping them as trophies. Looks like her collection is about to get even bigger...”
Wait. Isn't this Star Allies?? HAL might be doing this just because Star Allies is a celebration game.
BUT maybe Hal is planning on reusing these Dream Friend quotes in a future game...
Maybe, just maybe.
