iNES Mapper 201 has been assigned to a multicart mapper designed to contain multiple NROM-256 games. It acts like BNROM and CNROM overlaid, where one bank number controls both 32 KiB PRG banks and 8 KiB CHR banks, except it uses the address bus instead of the data bus.

 Here are Disch's original notes:

     +-------------------------------+

All known games on this mapper use only the two least significant bits (128KiB PRG / 32KiB CHR).
