Mugen releases extended battery for Samsung Galaxy Note 4

While the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has met expectations of fans of the OEM's Note series (well, most of them at least), it still suffers from the common ailment of smartphones and phablets like it: battery life leaves much to be desired.

This new Dragon Knights game from Com2uS is one such game that masquerades as an RPG but really comes closer to a dungeon crawler.
