|Seems Square struck gold after a while|
If what this article rings true, then the only thing I can say is that I am very happy being that this game which was missing from our youth back then is one of the greatest among the Mana entries and was happily brought officially after all this time for generations old and new to experience. I will add that hopefully this will motivate Square-(Enix) to create a new game that could potentially introduce many other mythos within the series that had been never been present on any game that has been out so far. Or at least just one game where the same mechanics that made Secret and Trials such a joy to play, I could certainly live with that.
From the article itself:
"It sounds like the recent PlayStation 4 remake Trials of Mana has quietly done really well for itself as Square Enix reports that the game has significantly outsold any expectations the publisher held for it. The news comes via a recent financial results briefing, where during a final Q&A session, the publisher said that sales "are so strong that they have significantly surpassed our initial expectations."
Square Enix hasn't publically shared any hard numbers, but this must bode well for the future of the franchise. Could we yet see a sequel to Trials of Mana or another entry in the Mana series as a whole?"
I sure hope so.

I believe the director or producer said that he wanted to make a new game, and that this was essentially the last chance for Mana and no more remakes after this. Since it apparently did quite well (and deservedly so), I'm hoping that means they passed the test and he is free to move on to a new game. As someone who never played the original SNES SD3 and who didn't care for Secret, I'm hoping they use this new one as a baseline in the future.
