Ashe was set to appear in Fortress, a game taking place in Ivalice. Two outfits were designed for her, and are less revealing variants of her original Final Fantasy XII outfit. Since she wears in a headdress similar to the one worn by King Raminas in one of the two designs, Ashe was likely to be a slightly older queen at this point in Ivalice history.
Ashe was to be a major character the game where an ancient sea king who would try to take over Ivalice once every 10,000 years would have targeted her for the deeds of her ancestors who had slain the sea king during his last crusade. Seeking revenge, the resurrected king would have sent his marine armies to invade the lands with only the magickal fortress standing in their way with Basch, as the game's main character, leading the defense of the fortress. Ashe, now an experienced queen many years unto her reign, would have been one of the first allies to help him on his quest. There was planned to be a romance between the two at the beginning, but it was planned to deteriorate with the two drifting apart and Ashe falling in love with Larsa instead.

This Dalmascan princess is working overtime in the Resistance to retake her kingdom.
Ashe is an exclusive character only available from the Premium Character Shop as a random downloadable content. She uses the Northswain's Glow ability during battle.
Princess of the fallen Kingdom of Dalmasca, Ashe has an unwavering sense of justice and an iron will. She set out in search of a devastating power to help restore her kingdom and take vengeance upon the Empire, but during her travels with Balthier she begins to have second thoughts.
Ashe appears as a playable character who could be recruited during the Challenge Event Kingdom Reborn, The Blood Royal as the First Time Reward for completing the event's Leviathan Interior stage on the Classic difficulty.
Ashe is the Dalmascan Princess. Her combat role is Offensive Magic
Wield swords and shields, she does, but Ashe is no fighter. Rather, her blades are magical in nature; they enhance an already-strong Magic stat while granting her Soul Break powers, most of which center on lightning-elemental attacks. This makes her ideal against ice-based foes in her own Realm, or water creatures elsewhere. Otherwise, she plays much like Terra before her. As her Realm's only Summoner and de facto Black Mage, Ashe is indispensable.
Her default Soul Break is Magick Lore, which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment raises user's Magic by 30%. The sword Runeblade (XII) allows Ashe to use Northswain's Glow, which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals non-elemental magic damage to all enemies with the 700% damage potency of a Black Magic spell and restores HP to all allies with 40% potency of a White Magic spell. The sword Demonsbane (XII) grants access to Heaven's Wrath, which for one Soul Gauge segment deals three holy-elemental strikes against one target. The sword Stoneblade (XII) grants access to Ashe's Super Soul Break, Maelstrom's Bolt, which for one Soul Gauge segment deals four lightning-elemental strikes against all targets in addition to healing all allies for a portion of their HP; upon mastery, Ashe's Magic is augmented by 10 points.
Ashe can equip the following weapon types: daggers, swords, spears, rods, staves, bows, and guns. The sword Runeblade (XII) allows Ashe to use Northswain's Glow. The sword Demonsbane (XII) unlocks Heaven's Wrath. The sword Stoneblade (XII) unlocks Maelstrom's Bolt.
She can equip accessories.
