Are You a Guitar Villain?

Late last year Activision filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the title "Guitar Villain" along with "Drum Villain" adding to RedOctane's previous filing for Keyboard Hero, Drum Hero, and Band Hero.

While filing for a trademark doesn't indicate a game is actually in development it does mean the concept has been considered at the very least.

One has to wonder what exactly a Guitar Villain game would be like? Would you be rewarded for playing poorly? Perhaps you use a headset to heckle the guitarist? Would the game feature a tracklist of bad songs?

More likely is that Activision and possible new developers Neversoft could be planning to add more story elements into future games in the series and the Guitar Villain is the primary antagonist. A no doubt frightening adversary.

Not yet filed is an application for Guitar Sidekick or Guitar Mutant.
