    STORY Japan celebrates the upcoming WSG (World Sports Games), the world`s largest sports festival which will be held that summer in Tokyo. At the opening ceremony, it was announced that the "Vacuum Superconducting Linear," a new bullet train that boasts a maximum speed of 1,000 km per hour, will run between Shin-Nagoya Station and the new Shibahama Station in Tokyo. As these events attract the attention of the world, an incident suddenly occurs at a party for famous tournament sponsors! Top WSG executives are abducted, one after another. Monitoring the incident are Shuichi Akai and the FBI, who is waiting for orders from Akai. Conan Edogawa sees a connection between the crime and a series of kidnappings of WSG execs that occurred 15 years ago in Boston, USA... a case that was also under the jurisdiction of the FBI. Is this more than a coincidence? As thousands of sports fans from all over the world gather in Tokyo, deadly secrets, a mysterious family and a "scarlet bullet" threaten them all. The danger that can never be stopped accelerates now...
