Tekken 7The latest character is original: Poland’s ass-kicking prime minister. No, not Mateusz Morawiecki, Poland’s current real prime minister, but Lidia Sobieska, a fictional karate master / politician. She’s coming to the Tekken series this week for downloadable content Tekken 7.
Lidia has found herself embroiled in the King of Iron Fist tournament thanks to the involvement of Mishima Zaibatsu, the longtime Tekken antagonist Heihachi’s multinational conglomerate, in her native Poland, according to her official biography:
Lidia has always been an upright and resolute woman. She believes that justice requires absolute power, and therefore she has shown great interest in karate from a very young age. The loss of her father aroused her interest in the family tradition of politics. Lidia showed good qualities in both areas, and started and won her first world championship in karate at 6 pm, and was recently one of the youngest growing stars in the Polish political arena. The war started by Mishima Zaibatsu strongly affects Poland, and she is committed to resolving the situation with her own fists.
You can see Lidia in action (on the Island Paradise scene) in her launch trailer below.
