Polish Prime Minister in Tekken 7 is the Karate User Lidia Sobieska

Bandai Namco sent out goodies related to the new DLC for Tekken 7. Thanks to this, we learned the name of the Polish Prime Minister who will soon join the game as a playable character.

The Polish debut in Tekken 7 is fast approaching. We don't know much about the competitive prime minister lady, but at least we know her name. All thanks to a special parcel from Bandai Namco (received by the editors of, among others), which reveals something about the Polish accent in the latest installment of Tekken. The package included a letter written by Heihachi Mishima to one Lidia Sobieska, who apparently demanded that he withdraw the Tekken Force troops from Poland. The old warrior refused the request, but encouraged her to cooperate or voice her objections personally by - how else - participating in the next edition of the "King of the Iron Fist" tournament:

Dear Ms. Prime Minister

I do not intend to follow your request for the withdrawal of the Tekken Force deployment in Poland.

However, I hold you in high regard on account of your ascension to the post of prime minister at such a young age. I have no doubt you will play a prominent role in shaping the future of your country. If you are of the mind to cooperate with my ambitions, you will have the strong support of the Mishima Zaibatsu for your country and all of the endeavors related to politics, economics, and military affairs.

If you refuse this offer, I am sure you understand the perilous situation in which it would place your country.

If you have any objections, you could always enter the King of the Iron Fist Tournament and propose them directly to me.

If you have any objections, you could always enter the King of the Iron Fist Tournament and propose them directly to me.

Apart from this very cordial letter, the box also contained a karate belt (which suggests Lidia's fighting style), a sweater, and - in keeping with the spirit of the times - a mask. It's not much, but it gives us an idea of the character, although it certainly doesn't replace a full-fledged presentation or even a trailer. Lidia Sobieska will debut in Tekken 7 along with the next DLC, which will appear in early spring. In the package we will also get another fighter (Kunimitsu) and two arenas.

Passionate about video (and other) games for years, he completed an Mba in linguistics, defending a thesis about games. He began his adventure with Gamepressure in 2015, writing in the newsroom, later also covering film and – oh, horror! – technology (also contributor to the gaming encyclopedia). He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
