The game is set four years after Arthur rescued Princess Prin-Prin from the demon Loki. They are engaged, and are about to be married. While spending a quiet moment, Prin-Prin is suddenly kidnapped by a demon. Players once again control the Knight Arthur in his effort to save his bride Princess Prin-Prin from the Ghoul Realm. This time, the ruler of the Ghoul Realm is the Demon Emperor Sardius. The game is similar to its prequels, though it is based more on Ghouls 'n Ghosts. In Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Arthur can upgrade to the bronze armor, that enables him to upgrade his weapons, and the golden one, that allows him to unleash a special magic attack by charging the attack button. A new ability of Arthur is to double jump. While he still can't change directions in mid-air, he can change the direction when he is doing his second jump. Also new this time around is the addition of new weapons. The Bow and Arrow which allows Arthur to shoot two arrows at once and at slightly different angles, and the Scythe, which flies along the ground. Sticking with tradition, players have to beat Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts twice in a row with a special weapon (Prin-Prin's Bracelet) before being treated to the true ending.
