    I am a huge fan of japanese Super Famicom (the japanese version of SNES) RPG games, and I was wondering if any of these were available on virtual console. If so, are they playable on a US Wii, or would I need to hunt down a japanese Wii to play them?

    I think they will only appear on the Japanese VC, if they appear at all. You may need to buy a Japanese Wii to play them.

    Apparently there's the possibility that we could get Japanese games in the future. In fact Battle Lode Runner for the TG-16 was never originally released in the West, but has made it onto VC. So there's a chance we could get some Japanese RPGs, but don't get your hopes up.
