On the TurboGrafx, it might be better to distinguish the cart ("HuCard/TurboChip") games and the CD games. It's not looking too likely the CD games will come. I think there's 13 on the list: Castlevania, Cho Aniki, Dynastic Hero, Fighting Street, Gate of Thunder, Gradius II, Lords of Thunder, Monster Lair, Riot Zone, SimEarth, Star Parodier, Super Air Zonk, Ys Book I and II.
The Hudson games are likely to come but third party less so. Though I think we've gotten some of the third party games on Wii U (like Hero Tonma) but Street Fighter II might still be a bit pricey for Konami to re-license from Capcom. What about the Namco games? (Bravoman, Dragon Spirit, Galaga '90, Ordyne, Samurai Ghost, Splatterhouse)
And Chase HQ is a Taito game, which means Square-Enix would hold the licensing rights and the entire gen they seem to have only been interested in VC for Japan.

Though it seems very unlikely at this point, I still hope that around the time of Nintendo's last Wii U content (BotW DLC Pack 2) they release Super Smash Bros. as kind of a final sendoff. Of course the last 3rd party Wii U content is the upcoming Shovel Knight King of Cards.

Lords of Thunder was released today for North America. This is our first CD game for the TurboGrafx-16. And Europe gets Digital Champ: Battle Boxing.

Nothing for Europe today, but North America gets Break In and and Salamander (Life Force). Salamander is new to the North American Virtual Console, having never appeared on the Wii VC.

And NOA briefly had a product page up for Bomberman Panic Bomber, which will be our second CD release on the Wii U when it presumably arrives here soon.

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.
And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

Europe gets Battle Lode Runner, Bomberman '93, and Lords of Thunder today. That brings them equal to us for TurboGrafx-16 releases.

Just as it was appearing to be truly finished, the Virtual Console reawakened today. North American gamers get Battle Chopper (aka "Mr. Heli") and Necromancer while European fans get both of those along with Image Fight and Image Fight II (CD).

All are TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine releases and all are Japanese exclusives making their Virtual Console debut in the West. Necromancer is a Japanese exclusive RPG for the PC Engine and hasn't been translated into English, so approach with caution.

All are releases that the Wii U previously received in Japan. The west is now within a dozen games of equaling the Japanese Virtual Console lineup, with no further additions having happened in Japan since last April.
