Well, it depends. If you enjoyed the retail version of the game and are willing to play a version that's graphically much closer to the author's original vision (original graphics and music), and also includes a couple of new, super challenging areas, then go ahead.
A note on Wind Fortress and Nemesis Challenge: These two areas are not incorporated into the main game. They are accessed from the main menu instead. Also, they are hair-pullingly hard (especially the second one).

That's actually debatable. Both translations are equally fine in my book. I have no preference in that regard. As for the visuals, yes, Steam has the updated graphics from WiiWare version, but lacks the stereoscopic layered 3D from the 3DS eshop version. So it's sort of a tie. In the end, it really just depends on whether you want to play it on a PC or on a handheld console.

The physical version has completely remade 2,5D polygonal graphics and rearranged music, and looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUVLyT1xtmw
The eshop download version retains the original pixel art and chiptune music, with stereoscopic 3D depth applied to the visuals, not unlike Mutant Mudds, for example, and it looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJbAs-sSX4A
Also, it includes two extra -and very difficult- optional areas not present in the original freeware release (Wind Fortress and Nemesis Challenge).
If you ask me, this is pretty much the best version of the game currently available.

GeminiSaint commented on Review: Devil World (3DS eShop / NES):

This review is surprisingly negative toward this game. Shame on you, Mr. Robert Hughes. Shame on you.
I think Devil World is a fun little diversion in the vein of other score-attack games of the era such as Pinball or Balloon Fight. It's fun for what it is, and in my opinion it does deserve to be released in the US.

GeminiSaint commented on Nintendo Download: 6th March (North America):

I'm getting Adventure Island, so not everything is lost for me this week, but seriously Nintendo, what happened to SMB3 on the 3DS eshop? Also, put the classic Pokemon games on the 3DS and watch them sell through the roof, even without link cable functionality. TPP demonstrated there's still an audience for those old games. You are missing on all that money.

I might get Mario Bros. later, if and when they put it up as a Club Nintendo reward. Now, in my opinion, Nintendo really should have released the arcade version of this game, rather than the slightly inferior NES port.
