Upcoming update will make Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic a universal iOS app
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.
You can see a screenshot from the updated version of the game in the gallery below.

Wheres the bloom? Still, kinda jealous, I loved that game and would love to have it on the go. Time to steal my cousins iPhone 5s for a bit.

It is definitely worth buying. IMO, it is THE benchmark for RPG's and games in general. Great story too, btw.
