A new key visual for the highly-anticipated upcoming anime film Lupin III vs Detective Conan The Movie has been released. The catch phrase says, "Let's finish up--." A poster featuring this visual is bundled with the 30th issue of Weekly Shonen Sunday which is just released in Japan today. It is also officially announced that the film will be released in Japan on December 7.
The most famous anime thief and detective boy met in a TV special with the same title Lupin III vs Detective Conan which was aired in Japan on March 27, 2009. As a result of the success of the TV special which gained a very good 19.5% rating, the second confrontation of the two is shifted to theaters. The details of the story has not been revealed yet, but it will be a new story, not a sequel to the 2009 TV special.
