Sony Ericsson has released a new trailer in its thumb-transplant series of Xperia Play ads, and confirmed an April 1 European release.

According to Engadget, the Xperia Play will set Spaniards back €649 when it launches next month.

Other European territories are expected to follow suit with release timing, although pricing is likely to vary.

Last week, Sony Ericsson confirmed a March 31 UK release for the smartphone. No official price has been set, but Play.com first listed it for pre-order at £519.99, later dropping to £499.99.

To celebrate the PlayStation Suite-enabled phone, a sequel to the Superbowl commercial has been unveiled, filling in some of the back story.
