Yes, it bears more than a passing resemblance to the Monster Hunter games, but it looks like Namco Bandai's God Eater is more than a mere clone for the popular Capcom franchise. It also has shades of Devil May Cry thrown in, so it actually takes from two Capcom franchises!
I kid, I kid. The game actually looks pretty awesome as I said in my previous God Eater post. That's just reinforced by this new promo vid. The graphics may not look like the best but I'll be damned if I don't play this, if only for that morphing gun-sword-chainsaw weapon. Oh, and watch out for a Rufus Shinra cameo! No, he's not really in there, but the dude sitting behind the desk sure looks like him.
Japan's getting this game in Fall 2009. Hopefully Namco Bandai makes use of that God Eater trademark they filed in the US a while back.
