Is "Disappears in Okhotsk" an official translation? I see "Okhotsk Vanishes" everywhere else.

I think it arose from a conversation I had with Teioh:

Teioh: i just found a japanese page where it was titled "disappears in okhotsk" but that was the translation of the webmaster

Teioh: nothing official

"Official" romanization is Okhotsk ni Kiyu ~ Hokkaidou Rensa Satsujin.

I still don't understand why we translate such names when games were not released outside Japan.

Mostly these are left over from when we used to commonly do just that. Ultimately, we need to change them all to an official romanization as we find them.

I've changed it to the romanized title.

As for the track title I went with "Disappearance in Okhotsk".
