Tekken 7's next DLC character is hard-hitting Polish prime minister Lidia Sobieska

Politically charged.

Tekken 7's next DLC character is Lidia Sobieska, who in the Tekken universe is the Polish prime minister.

Here's the official blurb:

"Lidia has always been an upright and resolute woman. She believes that justice requires absolute power, which is why she has shown great interest in karate from a very young age. The loss of her father stoked her interest in the family tradition of politics. Lidia showed great qualities in both areas, entering and winning her first karate world championship at 18, and more recently being one of the youngest rising stars in the Polish political arena. The war started by the Mishima Zaibatsu is greatly affecting Poland and she is committed to settle the situation with her own fists.

"After the Tekken​ Force arrived into parts of Poland, the Polish citizens cried out for a stronger leader and Lidia answered that call!"

Lidia launches on 23rd March on all platforms, and is joined by the new Island Paradise stage.

She's part of Tekken 7's fourth season pass, which kicked off in November with the release of Kunimitsu. Bandai Namco has yet to say whether there will be a season five.
