Official Description

Eight travelers. Eight adventures. Eight roles to play in a new world brought to life by Square Enix. Explore each traveler’s story and use their abilities in and out of battle. Will you expand your horizons as the Merchant or track down a traitor as the Warrior? Where will you go? Who will join you? You alone can choose your path.

Step into the shoes of a traveler to inherit their struggles and strengths. Use each character’s special abilities to interact with the world and enhance your tactics in turn-based battles. The Dancer’s alluring charm leads followers into battle, whereas the Apothecary can mix items to heal allies or unleash explosive attacks. Discover enemy weaknesses and target them to break through their defenses. Store Boost Points with each turn and then spend them at strategic times to strengthen abilities, chain attacks, or provide aid. Choose the path you wish to walk and discover what lies beyond the horizon.

Beyond the obvious meaning of the game's title - with "octo" meaning "eight" - the word "Octopath" is also composed of the protagonists names:

O(phelia) C(yrus) T(ressa) O(lberic) P(rimrose) A(lfyn) T(herion) H('aanit)

Additionally, they can also be found in that exact order on the game's map, starting with Ophelia in the town of Flamesgrace to the north and going clockwise until ending with H'aanit in the village of S'warkii to the north-west.
