This isn't just a co-op action rpg though. This is specifically a co-op action rpg where players get together and use different job classes to fight summon monsters (read: big). Definitely MH inspired and a different direction from before.

People jumped right on Monster Hunter when it sounds much more like another Crystal Chronicles.
Not really, I think it's very clear this is going after the Monster Hunter crowd since the page states that what you do in the game is repeatedly kill eidolons from the FF series. FFCC's focus wasn't on that, all those games save for TCB were much more focused on dungeon crawling.

I was confused at first too, but looking at the scan I can kind of get why people would get that impression.

I think they're at least posing the screenshots and the logo to be more "Your group versus the big monsters." even if it ends up playing more like Crystal Chronicles.
