Kamierabi Yoko Taro

Yoko Taro confirmed his involvement as the original script writer for Kamierabi through his Twitter account. However, the confirmation is accompanied by moment when the Japanese creator got a bit lost in translation. Instead of claiming that he wrote the “base story,” Yoko Taro mistakenly claimed that he made a “based story,” which is a commonly used slang to describe something of extremely good quality. Many Twitter users quickly intervened to help him convey his message better. You can check out the fun interaction below.
