Toukiden mashes up with Soul Sacrifice in new update

Cerberus offers a new pair of missions for Toukiden players that throw in the hell-hound doggie monsters from Soul Sacrifice to offer up a new challenge. This stuff was out in Japan last year, but I'm not sure if Toukiden content went into Soul Sacrifice, guess we'll find out soon enough.

How's everyone's Toukiden experience going? I only played the demo and am wading through Ys and Danganronpa right now. Is it really the next big hunting game, or a pale copy once you get into the bigger beasts?
