Namco Bandai have today confirmed that they'll be releasing Power Rangers Super Samurai for Kinect towards the end of 2012.

The game was long suspected to be in development after being leaked over a year ago by several retailers, but this is the first the Japanese giant has said on the matter.

Details are few and far between at the moment, but the game is pitched as being suitable for all ages, and will let fans of the series master the elements of Fire, Water, Sky, Forest and Earth as they morph into Red, Blue, Pink, Green, or Yellow Rangers.

Also included will be a fitness mode, as well as a "martial arts mode", which - according to the press release -" will teach the importance of teamwork, friendship, and responsibility that is needed to battle the evil Master Xandred and the malevolent Serrator."

Power Rangers Super Samurai is due for release in the UK and Europe in Winter 2012, and we've grabbed a batch of screenshots for you.
