In this final installment of the Super Star Wars trilogy, players control Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca as they spearhead the final strike against the Empire. Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is based on the third film in the original Star Wars trilogy and follows its story through cutscenes. Players will visit stages based on famous scenes from that movie that include the palace of Jabba, Endor, and the Death Star. In these platforming stages, players take control of the heroes from the movie. Each hero has his or her own special powers. Luke has mastered the lightsaber and the force. Han is an expert with blasters and Chewbacca can still perform his signature Wookie spin attack. Princess Leia is unique due to the fact that her powers change from stage to stage. While in her slave outfit, Leia can use a powerful chain attack. Later on, she takes on the role of a rebel soldier who wields a blaster. Even the Ewok, Wicket, makes an appearance.

Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi also features Mode 7 stages where players can ride speeder bikes and fly through space in the Millennium Falcon. These Mode 7 stages often require players to complete objectives as well as evade dangerous obstacles. This title is made up of over ten stages and has multiple bosses. Players can pick up their game from almost any stage by using a password.
