The time has come, young padawan. You can finally download Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on your iPad right here. It’ll set you back $9.99, which isn’t so bad for an RPG classic. Maybe take tomorrow off and have a very nostalgic long weekend?
The force was with us all along. Last week gave rise to a rumor that the classic BioWare RPG Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is coming to iPad. Truth, it is.
Word got around about a possible KOTOR iPad port when publisher Aspyr flubbed a mass email. The header for the email mentioned that “The critically-acclaimed Star Wars RPG is now available on iPad,” but the body of the email talked about Memorial Day game sales. Most game sites figured Aspyr’s email referred to KOTOR, since the roster of awesome Star Wars-related RPGs is a bit lacking otherwise.
There’s no set price or release date yet, but “soon” is a good guess for the latter. IGN already has a review of the port. Verdict: It’s as awesome as a Bantha’s butt is hairy.
Look for Slide to Play’s review soon.
