{Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is a platform game originally released for the Super Nintendo in 1994, developed by Sculptured Software and LucasArts as the third game on their Super Star Wars series, and is based off of the third movie in the Star Wars franchise, 1983's Return of the Jedi. Black Pearl released ports to the Game Gear and Game Boy the following year, developed by Realtime Associates instead.

While it's a mostly faithful adaptation, some levels were either simplified or, in the case of most of the vehicle-based stages, removed.
