UPDATE - 11:45am: And as Laura notes over at Kotaku UK, concerned fans have some reason to be skeptical:

This is a trailer and not the final game, but considering the original Catherineā€™s poor track record with trans representation, using a pre-transition name for a character in their credits and manual and giving male-only nightmares to a trans woman character, Iā€™m not holding my breath that this new romance will be handled tastefully. Iā€™d love to be proven wrong, but their track record doesnā€™t fill me with hope.

As pointed out below, a shocked Vincent is nothing new to Catherine.Ā
