Story

Capture the ring and become king of the world!

A Marquez memorial diamond ring that contains less than a carat is presented at an auction in New York. This is not very impressive to those attending. However, a mysterious man bids the astounding amount of one million dollars on it. More surprising is that he loses the bid to Cynthia, the President of Bank of the World, by just one dollar!!
Inspector Zenigata suddenly appears and it could only mean one thing; the mysterious man must be Lupin the Third! Lupin tries to grab the ring and run, but one of Cynthia's men, Nabikov gets to it first. Cynthia knows that the ring holds a secret that will reveal the location of the brooch that will make its owner the King of the world.
Lupin, Jigen, and Goemon then manage to break into the Bank of World. They apply their low-tech tactics to get into a high-tech vault, and successfully take the ring. After shaking off Zenigata, they are able to get past Nabikov's assault by a helicopter, but not before a bullet pierces through Lupin's chest. Lupin falls from the helicopter. Nabikov checks Lupin's body, takes the ring back and leaves. Could this be the end of Lupin the Third?
