Yen Press has announced they have acquired the rights to the Final Fantasy VII: On the Way to a Smile novel by Nojima Kazushige.

More info from Siliconerahttp:// http://www.siliconera.com/2017/11/20/final-fantasy-viis-short-stories-collection-will-published-west-yen-press/

" For those who don't know; a series of short stories written by Kazushige Nojima were released around the time of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII (Advent Children and beyond) which are character-centric and focus on what happens to particular characters between the events of Final Fantasy VII and Advent Children which occurs two years after the events of the game.

The collection of stories (Case of Tifa, Barret, Yuffie, Nanaki, Lifestream Black/ White, and case of Denzel) have been translated and are available in Novel format in Japanese, French and German and as a whole is known as "On the Way to a Smile". They have never had an official release in English.

This announcement means that the novel as a whole is finally getting an official English translation, and Yen Press also announced that more Final Fantasy ancillary materials will be released to the west.

Full disclosure: I run thelifestream.net which published fan translations and audiobooks of these novellas, so we're really looking forward to seeing what comes of the new English translations. "
