Ever since Code Vein has been revealed, gamers have been comparing the game with Dark Souls, however, accordign to director Hiroshi Yoshimura, the game is more than a Dark Souls Clone.
Dark Souls-ish, dungeon action RPG. Because I’m the creator of God Eater, there’s a lot of character behind the story and drama behind the story, too. We do have that unique flavor of narrative in there, so we wanted to feature that within the dungeon action RPG genre.
The game also features character customization which features elements that make the game unique compared to Dark Souls.
