November 21 update: As Nick mentioned in a comment, Hudson just added two games to the Virtual Console Turbografx 16 section. Here’s the press release: “Hudson Entertainment is announcing that its TurboGrafx games are now live on Wii Virtual Console. The two launch titles are Bomberman ’93 and Bonk’s Adventure. Other titles that were previously announced will be rolled out over the next few weeks, which include Super Star Soldier, Victory Run, and Dungeon Explorer.”

As orginally reported a week ago (thanks for the correction Rob & Bking), the Wii system will support TurboGrafx games that originally had 5 players multiplayer modes. These games include Bomberman ’93 and Dungeon Explorer.”
