‘Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords’ Rated by ESRB and Listed for Mobile

It looks like we’re getting a mobile port of the second Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic ($9.99) game. Aspyr Media got an ESRB rating for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords, which mentions Linux, Macintosh, and mobile. Aspyr published the first KOTOR for mobile and Mac, now it looks like they’re bringing the sequel to mobile as well – or at least are prepared to do so. KOTOR 2 never came out for Mac, and since KOTOR 1 has seemingly done well enough on iOS, it’s not a surprise to see KOTOR 2 coming to iOS.

KOTOR 2 wasn’t made by BioWare as the original was, instead it was made by Obsidian Entertainment. There’s not as high a reputation due to the game being rushed into completion, which hurt its reviews as there was a lot of cut content and plenty of bugs, but the latter could certainly be fixed with cleaned-up ports to new platforms. And at worst, more KOTOR is not a bad thing. Plus, even at a $9.99 price point like the first KOTOR was, the cost-per-hour with this game is absurd. The original holds up really well, so get excited for this.
