According to SiliconEra, Nintendo has just trademarked a few new game titles, as well as something called CrossPass.
"A bunch of trademarks, which appear to be related to the Nintendo 3DS popped up in Japan. CrossPass, CrossPass Mode, CrossPass Network, and CrossPass Connection all sound like they’re related to the tag mode inspired, always on networking feature. The Nintendo 3DS will allow players to exchange data while passing other players, even when they’re playing a different game.
Nintendo also registered trademarks for 3D Paddleball, 3D Challenge, and 3D Hopper. All of these sound like Nintendo 3DS software or, at the very least, tech demos. Nintendo also registered Target Shooting, which was the name of the neato augmented reality demo at E3."taken from http://www.siliconera.com/2010/07/26/nintendo-3ds-tag-mode-ca... .
Best Quote Ever. Thanks Nintendo!

CrossPass sounds official to me. Really, I can envision that like... Right now.
As for 3D Paddleball, etc., those sound like trademarks just for Nintendo to hoarde or something. I doubt they'll make an actual important game from them. If anything, it's some casual games to draw in their Wii market.

CrossPass..... the official name for Tag Mode?
EDIT: Ah, just read the article in full. I'm really hoping that Target Shooting is like a pack-in game for the 3DS.

I bet that 3D Paddleball, 3D Challenge, and 3D Hopper are built in software games that come pre-installed with the 3DS. Or maybe they are part of a greater package that's maybe called "3DS play" from the earlier trademarks.

Maybe Target Shooting is a part of 3DSPlay?
