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.

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.
