The LINKS NT-300 is a modem cartridge dedicated to 'The LINKS' network, with a speed of 1200 bps, released in December 1987. It is based on a specific protocol developed by Eijiro Taki, president of Nippon Telenet. The official name is 'Network Game Adapter II'.

It includes a 32kB ROM with a communication firmware. The NT-300 reference appears only on the box, while the underside label of the cartridge says TMA 1200 BSC.

Official price: ¥14,800 - thanks to the great success of "The LINKS' network, the price had seriously decreased by comparison with the previous version The LINKS NT-190.

The LINKS NT-300 was also bundled with the C-Drive package containing only the modem cartridge and a login for the network where you could download the game.
