New information has bubbled to the surface about the dynamic weather system in the upcoming Valhalla Knights 3 Gold. Previously a Famitsu report had revealed the addition, however new details have since been provided by in regards to its function.

According to Siliconera at least four weather effects will be introduced in the upcoming remake; Day, Fog, Rain and the ominous Blood rain. Each weather condition will dynamically affect the game world and offer exclusive opportunities to the player.

Here is how the new weather effects work:

Fog will reduce visibility and spawn bandits in the field, Rain attracts humidity-loving monsters to rise above ground and Blood rain fills the sky a crimson red while also raising the dead.

Additionally a Distortion Gauge  will be introduced to Vallhalla Knights 3 Gold’s UI, filling up when a player defeats enemies or revives allies. When full, the player will be granted the ability to open an other-worldly portal to another dimension.

Valhalla Knights 3 Gold releases February 27th, 2014 in Japan, exclusively for PlayStation Vita.
