'Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic' Might Come to the iPad

Bioware and LucasArts’ Star Wars role-playing game Knights of the Old Republic may be coming to the iPad in the near future, reports IGN, after obtaining a revealing email newsletter that Aspyr Media accidentally sent out to fans.

A header in the email, which was meant to advertise a sale on Call of Duty games, leaked the news: "The critically-acclaimed Star Wars RPG is now available on iPad…"

kotorAs noted by our sister site TouchArcade, the text likely refers to a Knights of the Old Republic game. Aspyr previously released the Mac port of the original KotOR game and has a presence in the App Store, having released its first iOS app, Sushi Mushi, last November.

As this was an unintentionally released headline, there is little additional information available at this time, but it is likely that more details on the iPad version of Knights of the Old Republic will be available in the near future if the leak is accurate.

This game would be a massive download unless it's split-up or heavily compressed. It requires 5GB on Mac, so prepare to delete a lot.

Huh. Not a game I would have expected on the iPad, but strangely alluring.

Day 1 purchase. the end of my time with FIFA 13.
GTA was never awesome on the iPad simply because its third person shooter mechanics is too difficult on a touch screen.
Kotor is perfect for touchscreens on the other hand.

Please do! I played through most of the game a long time ago but lost my save to a hard drive failure so I never got back to playing it. It would be ideal on iPad as it isn't really a real-time game and has tons of menus and text.
