Amazon Germany lists Yooka-Laylee with March 14th release date (UPDATE)

UPDATE - A Playtonic member says the release date is a placeholder

Last we heard, Yooka-Laylee was set to come out Q1 2017. That means it'll drop in either January, February or March. While there's nothing official just yet from Playtonic, Amazon Germany has updated their listing for the game with a March 14th release date. That would certainly fit with the Q1 talk, and the 14th seems like an oddly specific date to list as a placeholder. Let's see if this date ends up panning out.
