Little was known about Taito's upcoming iOS rhythm game Groove Coaster when it was unveiled earlier this month, but this new gameplay footage helps to fill in the blanks. Unsurprisingly, it looks pretty awesome.

In Groove Coaster, players tap the screen in time to beat-synced prompts that add embellishments and flourishes to a background music track. It's the presentation that really sells it, though, as the game features a variety of colorful background effects that recall Taito's previous App Store hit Space Invaders Infinity Gene.

Though the Invaders themselves don't seem to figure into Groove Coaster's gameplay, the game shares Infinity Gene's combo counter and director Reisuke Ishida. A release date for Groove Coaster has not yet been announced.
