During the Japanese Fighting Game Roundtable that was held last week, Bandai Namco announced a new DLC character for Tekken 7 in an extremely short teaser.
While her face, name, and fighting style weren’t revealed in the six seconds of footage that she appeared in, the short clip did at least confirm that Tekken 7’s latest character hails from Poland.
Not just another random fighter from the streets, this character is also addressed as the Polish Prime Minister and she’s ready to serve her people in the King of the Iron Fist tournament. That’ll earn her a few extra votes when it’s election time. Poland’s current prime minister is Mateusz Morawieck, who was elected in 2017 on a platform that had no mention of him being involved in any fights with an American wrestler, a panda bear, or a Mexican Luchador wearing a leopard mask.
Tekken producer Katsuya Harada said that the current release window is early Spring 2021 and that he had worked with the Polish embassy in Japan on creating the character.
Season 4 of Tekken 7 began last fall and introduced Kunimitsu, the daughter of the original ninja of the same name from the very first Tekken. Alongside other free gameplay updates, stages, and user interface enhancements, Bandai Namco also confirmed that more updates will roll out across Spring 2021.
