Heads-up, Jedi masters! It's just been confirmed that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is getting a very substantial update. How substantial, you ask?

First and foremost, it's going Universal. So if you don't have an iPad and have been using anything including a 5th Gen iPod Touch or an iPhone 4S and above, good news! The interface is also being tweaked so that the text will display better on smaller devices, and it's even going to support widescreen formats for the iPhone 5 and 5s! In addition, many of the graphical elements such as lighting and shadows are being dressed up for devices using the new A7 processor (iPad Air, Retina Mini, iPhone 5s). There have also been rumblings of MFi controller support, although it's still considered to be in the experimental stages.

So when is all this going to be available? Really, really soon. Like this week soon. If the stars align, the update will go live this Thursday, December 19.
