    Overview

    No Caption Provided

    Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is a sci-fi side-scrolling action platformer (with vehicular combat levels) developed by Sculptured and published by JVC for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in June 1994.

    The third and final installment of the Super Star Wars trilogy, Return of the Jedi is based on the 1983 film of the same name. Players must infiltrate the Tatooine palace of Jabba the Hutt as Luke Skywalker and his crew (including Chewbacca and a disguised Princess Leia) to rescue Han Solo. Afterwards, they must journey through the forest moon of Endor to weaken a re-built Death Star, where Luke must face-off against the leaders of the Galactic Empire.

    The game was later published by LucasArts in Europe and Victor Interactive in Japan, as well as re-released in North America years later by THQ. It was digitally re-released for the Wii (via Virtual Console) by LucasArts on September 7, 2009. The game also received handheld ports (ported by Realtime Associates and published by Black Pearl) for the Game Boy and Sega Game Gear in 1995.

    Gameplay

    In addition to the 3 playable heroes of previous games (Han, Luke, and Chewie), Super Return Of The Jedi adds Leia and Wicket the Ewok. The number of available players changes each level. The controls are the same as those of Super Empire Strikes Back, but Luke cannot use a blaster and only has 5 force powers. Some levels switch from controlling the heroes to piloting a ship.

    There are 3 difficulty levels; Easy, Brave, and Jedi. A password system allows players to start at any level provided they enter the correct password.
