Released in arcades in 1989, Gradius III was ported to Super Famicom one month after its release, in December 1990.
The gameplay has not been changed to much from previous episodes, and so the enemies and weapons. What is changed is the chance to continue after losing all lives, but a Beginner Mode was created to let players try the first three levels and get used to the gameplay; there was also introduced an Edit Mode in which the player can mix the different weapons and power-ups as preferred.
