The next movie in the Case Closed/Detective Conan series is Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween, which is set to premiere in Japanese theaters on April 15. Ahead of that, all the main characters are present and accounted for in a new key visual showcasing the Shibuya setting.

There’s also a new tagline to go along with it: “Protect the Truth to the End – The Destined Scramble Lit by Fire!!”

Series creator Gosho Aoyama also shared a comment:

Hello, I’m Aoyama! This time, the stage is Shibuya! Shibuya means scramble crossing! The story is about two detectives, Takagi and Sato, and five of Amuro’s classmates from the police academy intersect… Conan will unravel the scattered mysteries by focusing them on the dot! Well then everyone, Trick or Treat! (Watch the movie or I’ll play trick on you~♪) Just joking (laugh).

Here’s a trailer from December:

Story synopsis via Crunchyroll:

Shibuya, Tokyo, is bustling with the Halloween season. A wedding is being held at Shibuya Hikarie, where Detective Miwako Sato of the Metropolitan Police Department is dressed in a wedding dress. While Conan and the other invited guests are watching, an assailant suddenly bursts in, and Detective Wataru Takagi, who was trying to protect Sato, is injured. Takagi survived and the situation was settled, but in Sato’s eyes, the image of the grim reaper that she had seen when Detective Matsuda, the man she had been in love with, had been killed in a series of bombings three years ago, overlapped with Takagi’s.

At the same time, the perpetrator of the bombings escapes from prison. Is this really a coincidence? Rei Furuya (Toru Amuro), a member of the public safety police, is hunting down the man who killed his classmate, Detective Matsuda, but a mysterious person in disguise suddenly appears and puts a collar bomb on him.

Conan visits the underground shelter where Amuro is hiding out to disarm the collar bomb, and hears about an incident three years ago when he and his now deceased classmates from the police academy encountered an unidentified virtual bomber named “Plamya” in Shibuya. As Conan and his team investigate, a disturbing shadow begins to loom over them.
