When it was first announced that the pair of Puella Magi Madoka Magica movies would be screened in eight countries (18 cities total) outside of Japan, the films’ official website said that a different key visual artwork would be provided for each city.

To make every piece stand out, these key visual artwork pieces were said to each contain something instantly recognisable from the country it’s talior-made for. For Singapore, that naturally meant the Merlion at Marina Bay.

Here’s what that movie’s key visual artwork for Singapore looks like:

Anime Festival Asia 2012 in Singapore takes place in November. Concrete details for the movie screenings in Singapore – such as the exact day and time – have yet to be revealed, but should come very soon.

In the meantime, here’s a look at the movies’ key visual image for USA, as well as the original one that was used for Japan:
