Activision applies for Drum Hero trademark

Activision has applied to trademark Drum Hero. Yes, your initial reaction is likely the same as ours: "Wait, how did Activision not do that already?" Good question, but apparently the Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, and Band Hero publisher only applied for the trademark in late October. This does not guarantee a percussion-based Hero title is in the works, but, once again, aren't we all a little surprised one doesn't already exist?

If the inside of your cranium is tickling with the distinct feeling like you have memory of a Drum Hero trademark, the confusion may have to do with the Guitar Villain and Drum Villain trademarks, that were apparently filed back in 2007 -- which is when one would think the Drum Hero trademark would have been filed as well.
