Why did Punchout!! Wii never get a sequel?

It was well received, accessible, and Little Mac got included into Smash because of it. But the game came out in 2009, and we never got a sequel. Why?

I think one of Nintendo's philosophies for their games is that if you can not improve the gameplay and create a new experience, it does not need a sequel. How would the series evolve, beyond just getting better graphics? The option to play existing versions of games will always be there (and eventually on the VC too), that's all we need, it's a waste of resources to make countless sequels "just because."
