Before the Empire rose to prominence, there was the empire of old… Old Republic to be precise. And the prolific Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, probably known more widely for its sexy trailers than its gameplay, is getting a total upheaval with the announced remake.
Furthermore, the remake seemingly has something else going for it; neither Bioware nor EA are involved in the remake of Star Wars KOTOR. The remaker is being handled by Aspyr, and won’t involve the EA or Bioware – that created the original.
Can we also point out the irony that a game whose roots started out as an Xbox exclusive now is being remade as a Playstation Exclusive.

Sony has confirmed that the gae remake is “still early in development”. It is being worked on by “industry veterans who have worked on great RPGs, as well as some members of the original Knights Of The Old Republic development team”.
More as things develop.
