The Satellaview was an add on for the Super Famicom. The games were downloaded from a satellite while a specific TV show aired, and could be played for the duration of that TV show, typically for an hour. Each of the games had the prefix BS, which stood for Broadcast Satellaview; this prefix is maintained in ROM file images that have been dumped for these games.

The games could be saved on Memory Blocks and could be played on the Super Famicom.
