PictoChat 2 (ピクトチャット2, PictoChat 2) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS based on the PictoChat software for the Nintendo DS. It retains the same general layout as the previous PictoChat stage, but has different drawings (with rivaling variety), each with different effects on gameplay. Two of the drawings include Pac-Man-like shapes that apparently move around the screen (based on Pac-Pix) and a street, which is designed to look like it has depth. R.O.B. is fought here when he is being unlocked.
As with the first PictoChat stage, this stage is based on the PictoChat communication app on the Nintendo DS. One can either type or draw a message to his/her friend with their stylus. Originally, it was only accessible from the handheld's main menu and just supported local connections. However, some games, such as 42 All-Time Classics, have integrated PictoChat into the interface with online connectivity.
The stage itself in SSB3DS is on top of a bar that is located on the top screen of the DS (even though the one writing the message draws on the bottom screen) and tells the user who is joining their chat room. In the original app, there were four chat rooms (A, B, C, D) that could each hold up to 16 people. In SSB3DS, the bar displays the names of the characters in the fight, as if they were joining the room, though it is always shown as room [A].
There are 27 sketches that can be drawn in PictoChat 2, 26 in the normal form and one in the Ω form of the stage. Like in its predecessor, dark lines can be walked on or can affect the players depending on the sketch, and faint lines are intangible.
The Omega form only features the main platform with a fighter's name. This is the only form to use the Changing Weather background.
