In a corner of Tokyo Bay lies the completion of a futuristic city, Bay City. While Kaori Makimura and Miki attend the inauguration of the hotel, a deposed autocrat of the Costello Republic, General Gilliam, his daughter and his troops show up as well, with revenge plans of his own.  With the nuclear missile system at their hands, the police and the US forces could only rely on Ryo Saeba and Umibozu to face this threat.

He says to Ryo that this was too much for a rookie like Ryo to handle, and that only a real expert like Umibozu can finish the job. Ryo angrily responds that this was Umibozu's mission in the first place.
