NT, also known as 卡聖 (Ka Sheng) in Chinese, is a publisher of both original games and pirate copies of licensed (and unlicensed) games, mainly for the Famicom, but its logo has also been found in the Mega Drive game Barver Battle Saga: Tai Kong Zhan Shi. most NT releases were single cartridges, but the company also released some multicarts with a relatively low, unexaggerated game count, between 2 and 6.
NT cartridges can usually be identified by the NT-xxx ID number or the "卡聖" characters; in the company's later years KT and GT IDs were also used.

While most NT-published originals use mapper 121 or other mappers, NT also released a version of JY Company's China Rabbit Baby (Mickey Mania 7) which used original JY mapper 90 boards, with new labels bearing the name "Super 98 King of Rabbit 5".
NT carts are known for their frequently bizarre labels featuring artwork only tenuously related (if at all) to the game within, psychedelic backgrounds, colourful patterned borders, overlaid characters from different sources, multiple titles (one from the stolen artwork and one for the actual game), obviously false claims presumably lifted from games for different consoles ("3D Graphic Motion", "Surround Sound", "Sega 16Bit Quality") and more. Some carts have the Olympics logo on them.
Games are often retitled on the label only, with minimal or no change to the title screen; common changes include adding "Super" or the year of release, and adding or increasing a number. For example, NT-313 "Super Terminator 3" is actually just the first Terminator game. Some games are given a different title entirely, such as the title of a similar game for a different console, that of a popular movie with similar themes to the game, or sometimes an entirely nonsensical title like "Worstue Ball 2", "Super Crocodile Sir" or "Worldwide Publishing". Titles are also frequently misspelled.
Some later cartridges, usually labelled "Hi-Game 1999" or "Colour 2001" (the year varies) feature vertically printed labels, for unknown reasons.
