It was originally supposed to be an expansion/upgrade kit. It was going to add an expanded Random Setup Generator like Flames of War has with Day of Decision, expanded air/naval stuff for people wanting more detail, and then fixes to rebalance Dai Senso! They now decided it's just going to be a completely new edition combining Totaler Krieg!, Dai Senso! and the originally proposed expansions with new rulebooks and scenarios.
As noted in a couple threads elsewhere, Wingspan just did not do it for me. I played it three times and each time sat in mild wonder that so many people decided that this was the game of the year. It just doesn't do that much that so many engine builders do right now and/or have done before. I like the concept of Honshu and it seems like a good travel/camping game, but it just didn't draw enough interest to come off the shelf more than a couple times.
878 wasn't a must-have on my trade list, but I love historical wargames and I was willing to make a trade based on a willingness to try something to replace two games that I was unlikely to play again.
