May the Force be with you. And maybe a Moga controller.

Mac game publisher Aspyr Media announced Thursday the release of the latest update of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, the iOS port of the classic role-playing game set in the Star Wars universe.

The update is free and includes much-asked for support for Made-For-iPhone (MFi) controllers like the Steel Series Stratus, Moga Ace Power Controller, or the Logitech PowerShell. In addition, the team has added iCloud saves and new supported languages including English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.

“The continued love for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic from players around the world has been nothing short of amazing,” said Elizabeth Howard, Aspyr’s Vice President of Publishing. “We’re excited to offer an update that rewards the game’s international fans and allows KOTOR players to not only play the game just as they remember it, but to allow them increased flexibility to play where they want.”

All extended and standard MFi controllers are fully supported, and you can now play any saved game across different iCloud-enabled iOS devices. The language support includes text localizations for French, Italian, German and Spanish players, with added subtitles in each language as well.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has you taking part in an epic tale of the Jedi and Sith warriors 4,000 years before the events of the famous films. You’ll create a customized character to move through the various branching storylines, choose which side of the Force you’ll follow, and change the outcome of the game as you go.

KOTOR has been a fan-favorite since its release in 2003 on the XBox, and continues to wow modern audiences on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It’s currently on sale for $4.99 in the App Store, and available on Mac OS X for $9.99, as well.
