    Could you play BS-Satellaview Games on a physical SNES/Super Famicom/Whatever takes the catridges through:

    -A cartridge for reading backups/ROMs (e.g. PowerPak)
    -Reproductions (I've only seen BS Excitebike & BS F-Zero 2 Grand)
    -The original Satellaview Cartridge
    -Modifying said original Satellaview Cartridge

    the stallaview cartridge needs to be able to communicate with the unit on the bottom of a SFC, so the option is out. if you have a power pak, you could try, but i don't know about that (should be fine if they are .sfc or an other snes rom file that works with it.

    Your best bet is to use an emulator, however.

    If you have a flashcard, then most of them should work fine, but if you don't, your best bet is emulators, whether they're on a console or a computer.

    BS Zelda might not work because of the additional timer the game has. But I'm not sure.
    You'll have to play that one on emulator.
    But honestly, emulators are great today :D

    If you want a way to play Satellaview games on a SNES without much trouble, get a sd2snes, it's expensive, I know, but it works just fine.
    You could still change the Satellaview header to a normal SNES header to play on a PowerPak, it works, but not always.

    Can you find such flash cart cartridges cheap?
