The official website for the Detective Conan films revealed the poster visual on Wednesday for Meitantei Conan: Konjō no Fist (Detective Conan: Fist of Blue Sapphire), the 23rd anime film in the Detective Conan franchise.

The film will open on April 12.
The film will be set in Singapore, and will be the first Detective Conan film set outside of Japan. Singapore's famous Marina Bay Sands, will be the site of a murder case in the film. The plot will involve a large gem known as the "Blue Sapphire," which sank to the bottom of the ocean at the end of the 19th century.
The film will center on Kaitō Kid, Makoto Kyōgoku, and Conan Edogawa. It marks a return of the Kaitō Kid character to the Detective Conan films since his last appearance in Detective Conan: Sunflowers of Inferno, the franchise's 19th film, in 2015. It is also the first appearance of the character Makoto Kyōgoku in the franchise films. In the film, Makoto, an undefeated karate master with 400 wins, confronts Kid as Kid tries to steal the Blue Sapphire. Meanwhile, Kaitō Kid brings Conan to Singapore against his will.
