Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (now US$2.99)

Since the forum is not linked to the front page...

Since this drops totally out of the blue back then, I will not be surprised to see the sequel ported to arrive unannounced.

It is a Zero-day buy, just make sure it has the contents restored.

Is there any info of the port even being in development? I thought gargantuan IOS adaptations like the original KOTOR were a thing of the past.

Maybe I'm wrong and my memory is playing tricks, but when KOTOR for iOS was released, it was something like TA published a piece of news out of nowhere saying that it was under development, and 2-3 days later the game was released globally. I think it was very unexpected, so maybe KOTOR 2 for iOS is nearly ready and that's why news ha started to appear... I'll stand corrected though.

I'm sure I read somewhere, maybe Pocket Gamer, that the title had been submitted to Apple - but with no release schedule imminent.

It is never more stranger than answering my own thread

The official line is: nope, there is no KotoR2 in development at the moment...

According to a piece on Pocket Gamer:
Answering to fans on Twitter, Aspyr's official account states that it would like to work on it "one day" but that it doesn't have anything to announce soon regarding a port.

Whelp given its been available for free on android (via Amazon) for like a while, it's nice to see an iOS sale...
