    I hope it will be possible as well, but i doubt it.
    i don't think they can emulate the Chip that was in the original cartridge so well on the DS. but i hope they will make it possible, maybe by using a RAM pak that it extracts a patch/program that emulates the chip, every time you start that game.. but i don't know..

    It is possible, it'll just be a very long, painstaking task. Any chip for the SNES games can be emulated really, it's just that the developers of these emulators don't want to have to deal with the hassle, so they just say "it's impossible" and leave it at that, making people think it's not possible.

    Yeah , I figured it had to do something about that too.. but I wasn't sure, but yeah, if they put enough work into it, i'm sure they could accomplish something like that on the DS.
    but as you said, it would be quite a hassle for just one game, but thats, one REALLY good game.. ( or is it the same chip as in other games? like Mode 7 style games-DKC series , starfox and such? , super FX chip, right?)

    More than one game uses the SA-1 chip. Others include Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby Super Star. See http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/SNES_games_with_special_chips for a more complete listing.

    EDIT: The DKC games do not use any coprocessor chips, and so they are able to be emulated in SNEmulDS. Personally I think they're some of the most playable SNES games on the DS, but that's just my opinion.
