Disaster Report (known as SOS: The Final Escape in Europe, Zettai Zetsumei Toshi in Japan) is a survival action adventure game created by Irem. It was released in Japan for the PlayStation 2 in 2002 and in 2003 was released in North America and Europe. The game deals with the characters’ survival and escape from the slow collapse of an artificial island. While dodging falling buildings and debris from periodic earthquakes, the player must find a way off the island. In addition, the main character, a reporter, must investigate the reasons for the disaster. [Infos from Wikipedia]

When they ported the game for the US and PAL market, they decided to change the hair color for the main protagonists: from the natural dark brown hairs to a weird blonde / yellow tint. This was probably done to make the game to appeal more to the western audience, but we can only wonder if the game really did sell better just because of yellow hairs. Even other characters, as the Editor-in -chief journalist and the young girl, had some hair changes: the journalist had black hair / beard in the original version, but white in the USA / PAL one, while the girl have more “orange” hairs in the western release instead of brown.
