“Bored of the same old tired games, and there's nothing new? Well, think again. Prime Empire is a gaming experience like no other. Giving you eight whole bits of graphics! From the Temple of Madness, to the Forest of Discontent, to the futuristic Terra Technica. You'll never experience anything like Prime Empire. Coming to an arcade near you.”
— Commercial Narration

Prime Empire is an old, legendary arcade game, created by Milton Dyer.

After the defeat of the Blizzard Samurai, the game resurfaces and gamers become trapped within. The Ninja must find the three Key-Tanas in order to defeat the ruler of Prime Empire, Emperor Unagami, and rescue the people who have been captured inside the video game.

Official Description

The mysterious appearance of the legendary video game, Prime Empire, has gamers excited in Ninjago City. Everybody's lining up to play, eager for the chance to test their skills, but one by one, players are disappearing... it's all fun and games until you reach Level 13.


The arcade game was created at an unknown point in time by Milton Dyer. However, for unknown reasons, the game was cancelled before it was supposed to be released.

Season 12: Prime Empire


  • This will be the second time the Ninja travel into a virtual world, the first time being the Digiverse in Season 3.
  • It can be entered through Arcade Pods.
  • Prime Empire is possibly inspired by the 2017 movie Jumanji, where the video game of the same name that was once a board game, then became a video game where people were trapped.
    • Unlike the video game mentioned, the avatars of the Ninja are themselves, only with a few different aspects to them such as their clothes or hair color/style.
    • It may also be inspired by the 1982 movie Tron and its 2010 sequel, Tron: Legacy.
  • When someone reaches level thirteen in the game, they get sucked into the game itself.
  • When people enter Prime Empire, they are given four lives, which are displayed in Health Boards.
  • When all three Key-Tanas are combined at the Temple of Madness, it seems to trigger a mechanism that reveals Emperor Unagami.
  • According to Cyrus Borg, Androids can't enter Prime Empire, otherwise their programming will be erased.
