XSEED has confirmed it is bringing Senran Kagura Burst to the 3DS eShop later this year.

The sidescrolling action brawler has been available in Japan for a while and features five buxom high school ninjas, each with their own special ability, who train in a secret academy.

There are in fact two separate storylines in the game, which are told through a visual novel: Skirting Shadows introduces players to the "good shinobi" of Hanzō Academy, while Crimson Girls, tells the same tale from the perspective of the rival school.

One of the game mechanics that has made the game infamous is the way the ninjas lose clothing when they take damage, which is perhaps a little unnecessary. There's set to be plenty of combat to be had too, with retrieval missions, multi-character battles and large boss fights to be played along the way.

Meanwhile, the original Japanese voice-overs will remain but there will be English subtitles. Interestingly, the game has been rated T for Teen by the ESRB.

Senran Kagura Burst will be available in the eShop this Fall. Will you be downloading it? Let us know in the comment section below.
