It can't be both? It more or less is still an RPG, there's just more action/adventure than VP since the screen doesn't transition and there are progression abilities rather than the static things Lenneth/Alicia always have. You can climb walls in VP1 too, just not so much like that. It's actually almost odd that they didn't have you do a more lengthy straight wall climb with the crystal shot, which would have been possible...maybe kinda tough though. I do remember something like that in one of the levels...the hard mode fire dungeon, I believe? There was some trickier movement stuff there...
Anyway yeah, it's a Metroidvania game but also an RPG, in less the sense of Igavania being an RPG and more a "battle system".

Even then, there's a free prototype you can play so you can judge for yourself. I'd say in Mega Man Zero you are a lot "lighter" in that you can do perpetual wall jumps super fast. You can't really do that here so far. Also while it's possible to kill enemies upon hitting them, you have to be strong enough to do that. Otherwise you'll be put in the battle screen. At this stage, I don't see how you can KO bosses and avoid the battle system outright to make it look like a Mega Man game either.
Still hoping for that maniac dungeon/new game plus. Then again, Lab Zero has weird ways of finding money here and there so they might just end up adding it later on anyway. It's very rare for them to underestimate a budget so that they find themselves in debt, but even then they still deliver on their promises somehow.
purifyweirdsoul: My suggestion wasn't serious, but I never considered "y" vs "ie" a dialect thing, more of a matter of preference. Pinky and pinkie, for instance. edit: Redogan, yes it is

Galamoth: Brainiac Speaking of easter-eggs in Order of Ecclesia, there's also a rare occurrence in Wygol Village where you can get George (the minstrel) to hum the Stage 1 theme from the original Gradius, instead of his usual "Good day" response.
