In the film, Japan is celebrating the upcoming World Sports Games (WSG), the world's largest sporting event in Tokyo. The world's first vacuum-tube super-conducting linear train called the Japanese Bullet is built with the latest Japanese technology and timed to coincide with the WSG opening ceremonies. The train is set to run from Shin Nagoya Station to Tokyo Station at up to 1,000 kilometers per hour, but a bizarre incident occurs during a party held by famous major sponsors, leading to a string of kidnappings of top executives. Conan deduces a possible link to serial abductions in the WSG 15 years earlier in Boston.
Directed by Tomoka Nagaoka (Detective Conan: Fist of Blue Sapphire) and written by Takeharu Sakurai (Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer), the film is set for an April 16th release.
