First of all, the update will make the classic role-playing title a universal iOS app, meaning that it'll be available for iPhone users as well. It is speculated that devices as old as iPhone 4s and the 5th generation iPod Touch will be able to run the game just fine, but there is no official information about this yet.
The visuals of SW: KotOR are also expected to finally take advantage of Apple's high-resolution screens - something which was not implemented in the original port of the game. What's more, the graphics will be enhanced with bloom lighting (for Apple A7-powered iDevices), and shadows.
Currently, Star Wars: KotOR requires an iPad 2 or newer to run, and is priced at $9.99.
