The game publisher submitted trademark applications, which cover a wide variety of goods and services, both in Europe (Application number: 010823672 – .PDF) and the United States (Serial Number: 85611715) for “Solo Remix”.
The European trademark filing offers more details about the upcoming product. And it appears Solo Remix may be more than just an app that involves music.
