I think it's visually jarring and I think it meshes very poorly with the Cyberpunk backdrop - based on the screenshot. Almost like having cartoon characters in a dystopian setting.
Not only fewer cells in animation. But probably characters that dont change related to the equipment they are wearing.

How much I love 2D animation (i am 2d animator myself) i think they would be better off making 3d animation that just looks like hand painted.
